Bruce Springsteen was right: We were born to run.

And what more motivation do you need to run when you can be absorbed deep into nature in Pontfaen. Use all your senses to hear, see, smell and feel as you run  along  winding, lonesome, scenic trails. Enter the dark forest paths, ancient woodlands and fields. Climb the hills, cross streams, find riverbank routes. Run up to the high Fells, leading to the most amazing views. Run in the dim twilight of the late summer evenings or in torchlight late after sun set and pause to gaze upwards in awe at the outstanding quality of night sky free of light pollution.

This is the land of the Red Kite, Buzzard and Skylark, and regardless of the harsh climate and poor grazing the Welsh mountain ponies can be seen running free in the uplands.

Run in Pontfaen where the human-nature relationship becomes harmonious and spontaneous.

PS There are also some scenic winding lanes out there!


“But especially he loved listening to the subdued and sleepy murmurs of the forest, reading signs and sounds as a man may read a book, and seeking for the mysterious something that called—called, waking or sleeping, at all times, for him to come.”

—Jack London, The Call of the Wild
