Tough Runner UK welcome a NEW event to the stunning Fforest Fawr. Forest Fawr is the stunning backdrop to Castell Coch, a famous castle nestled in the trees above the village of Tongwynlais.
This beautiful woodland is frequently used as a film location for productions ranging from Welsh historical dramas to children's TV programmes.
The forest has an industrial history and there are some impressive deep holes left by iron mining here.
There are two trails to the castle.
