Course Details

Sunday is the day contestants take on arguably the more difficult event of the weekend. Athletes will either be running the Wales Marathon of 26.2 miles, or the Wales Half Marathon of 13.1 miles.

The Wales Marathon starts at Tudor Square, Tenby at 10am, whilst entrants of the Wales Half Marathon gather at Pembroke for a 12pm start. Both of these events are on closed road routes, so there won’t be any worries about traffic for runners to dodge.

Feed and water stations are situated roughly every 5 miles along the route for both parts of the race. The cut off time for the Wales Marathon and Wales Half Marathon is 4pm in Tudor Square, Tenby.

Bags can be collected when your race is over from St Johns Church in Tenby.

The updated course map is coming soon.
