  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A fantastic race set in beautiful scenery, wonderful views of North Wales to your left as you run the route, great value for money and definitely one of my favourite races
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great morning all round. The staggered start works very well. Organisation great. Lovely cakes at the finish!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A fantastic route with beautiful scenery along the way. The marshals did a good job and the local people gave words of friendly encouragement along the way. The only negative I have is that the runners needed to go to the finish line before the race to collect the number and tab. Perhaps these could have been at the start line or posted out.
