Route information
10k
The race begins in the centre of the village, with a view over the harbour. From here, racers will head through the high street and up to Lon Pentre Bach, before turning left towards Sarn Bach crossroads. A series of narrow lanes will take runners onto the glorious 'Tocyn Brutal' hill. The hill will challenge entrants with 600m of rough terrain and 140ft of elevation, but the view at the top is stunning before the course sweeps all the back down onto the golf course.
The race concludes with an incredible beach finish, following the shoreline to the picture finish line, cheered on by a very supportive crowd of spectators.
3k Beach Race
Taking place just before the main event of the 10k, the 3k beach run is ideal for all abilities. Beginning and ending on the beach, runners will follow a real fun course that sweeps through the golf course, along a bridle track and back fown onto the beach for that memorable finish on the waters edge.
