Route information
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!

Conwy is a small town prone to congestion, particularly with large events like this! Please arrive with plenty of time to spare.
There are two main parking areas available, and there is a £2 parking charge which allows you to park in town for the whole day:
Car park 1: For vehicles approaching Conwy via Llandudno Junction A55, turn left at the castle, under the arch and follow the road round to the car park, on Llanrwst Road.
Car park 2: For vehicles approaching from Bangor direction and as an overflow from car park 1, is located at the County Council offices in Bodlondeb.
There is also another overflow parking area located near Aberconwy school in the Morfa which is a ten minute walk in to Conwy.
The later you arrive the longer it will take to walk the start. The furthest parking area is approx a 10 minute jog or 20 min walk to the start.

FAQ's
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.

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.
CaretLeft
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.

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Fantastic course, nice atmosphere around the course. and friendly stewards. Atmosphere was good before the race, but underwhelming at the finish line, with runners herded away after finishing to the bag reclaim area where there were no music or announcements. PA system could only be heard within a few meters of the start/finish line. Nothing but water at the end (all similarly priced half's I've done have had some kind of snacks). Most frustrating thing was there seemed to be no way to access your official time after finishing. The official website is no help and at the time of writing this (7pm on the evening of the race) isn't working at all. Really expect better as an official time is one of my main reasons for doing these.Conclusion. Beautiful and challenging course, race itself went without a hitch. Poor value on the extras considering the price.

Brilliant race. Lots of support along the way. We had great weather too! Do plenty of work on your hills to prepare you for the challenge of miles 6 and 7 going up the Great Orme!
