Tucked away beyond Snowdonia’s craggiest peaks with the Irish Sea on one side and Cardigan Bay on the other, the Llŷn has a distinctive, unspoilt character that’s all its own. Its sunny southern coast draws walkers, wakeboarders and dinghy-sailors, while the ancient pilgrimage site of Bardsey Island, at its tip, is a haven for wildlife. 50 miles, 75 miles and 100 miles in 24 hours, these are the challenges posed by the Pen Llŷn Ultra Marathon. The races start and finish at the beach next to Aberech Sands Caravan Park near Pwllheli, with checkpoints / aid stations along the scenic route.

Pen Llyn Ultras
Tucked away beyond Snowdonia’s craggiest peaks with the Irish Sea on one side and Cardigan Bay on the other, the Llŷn Peninsula has a distinctive, unspoiled character that’s all its own. Its sunny southern coast draws walkers, wakeboarders, and dinghy-sailors There are several islands dotted around the peninsula, with the famous ancient pilgrimage site of Bardsey Island, at its tip and can be seen in all its beauty during the race. The islands and coastline of Llŷn are a haven for wildlife and an area of outstanding natural beauty. Seals and dolphins are common sites around the peninsula. All of this makes a perfect backdrop for the Pen Llŷn Ultra.

Did the race in 2019
A fantastic ultra with a great group of volunteer marshalls to cheer you on at each well stocked checkpoint. I ran the 75 mile race in 2019 and would reccommend it to anyone looking for a challenging ultramarathon in beautiful surroundings. The route follows the Wales Coast Path around the stunning Llŷn peninsula, hugging the coastline for 60 miles before turning inland for the last section across the peninsula. This is not a race for beginners (there is a shorter 50 mile version for newbies as well as a 100 mile monster!) but would suit anyone looking to step up their distance. It is a trail ultra with relatively little road running (almost entirely in the last 15 miles or so), however navigation is not particularly challenging, allowing the runner to concentrate on maintaining their pace and enjoying the incredible scenery! You don't have to take my word for it, check out the mini documentary on Youtube:
