Frequently asked questions
Are headphones permitted on the course?
No. The Conwy Half Marathon adheres with UKA guidance: for races using open or partly open roads, all headphones (with the exception of bone-conducting headphones) or similar devices (unless for medical purposes) are not permitted. Unfortunately any competitor caught using headphones will be disqualified from the event. … read more
Is there a cut off time?
Although we ask all runner to keep to a minimum pace of 12-15 minute miles (which would take between 3-3:30 hours to complete the course), if you are running slower than this you still will be able to finish. However, when directed to do so you will need to run on pavements and run as a pedestrian obeying all signals and the highway code. We cannot guarantee volunteer marshals will continue to be on course and therefore it is your responsibility to look at the route and follow the course signs.… read more
Is this a closed road event?
The majority of the course is closed road, however it is important to note that the Great Orme is open to traffic. It is therefore very important to listen to marshals instructions as vehicles have the right of way. When crossing a road please listen to marshal instructions on crossing points and keep on the Left at all times unless instructed different.… read more
Route description
Route description

This beautiful course runs alongside the Conwy River, flowing towards Deganwy Beach and the West Shore Llandudno.

From there it goes along church Walks towards Llandudno Pier, then around the Great Orme taking in views of the Isle of Anglesey, Puffin Island, and the surrounding North Wales coastline, before looping back to Conwy and the finish line.

The course is relatively flat making it the perfect opportunity to go for a PB!
