The Dirty Weekender

A wet and wild weekend in February saw four Dirty Weekender winners arrive in Plas-y-Brenin mountain sports centre in Snowdonia.

The four lucky adventurers, Kim, James, Luke and Alexa, were treated to a weekend of mountain biking, trail running, orienteering, abseiling and low ropes as well as an intro to the benefits of Nikwax.
