The Llandudno Easter 5k Promenade Dash17 Bodafon St, Llandudno LL30, UK

This fast and flat 5k Promenade Dash is now firmly established on the local running calendar. As always, there will be Easter eggs and other seasonal goodies on offer, plus a medal waiting for you at the finish.

The route uses an accurately measured fast and flat out and back course along the Llandudno Promenade. It's suitable for experienced runners and beginners alike; for the more experienced, it's a good chance to record a PB, and for beginners it's a nice, flat introduction to 5km races. The event also includes a short childrens race.

The race will be supporting the Little Orme Lions Club, who will be fundraising on the Promenade on the day.

May Mud RunsSt Davids, Haverfordwest SA62 6DG, UK

The Man Up UKs Mud Run is quite simple. Take unforgiving land, idyllic scenery, an abundance of natural obstacles, with a few extra man made challenges. Put all of these ingredients together and we have an action packed course suitable for all. (with a bit of training!)

The Really Muddy Weekend is ideal for all. Whether youre a group of friends, a touring sports team, a family day out, a work related team building session or as a charity fundraiser. It really can hit all the buttons.

The Mud Runs will be the main attraction but the weekend could be much more. Why not make the most of it and use the opportunity for a camping or Bunkhouse stay at this magnificent location? Celtic Camping is literally on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path overlooking Abereiddy Bay. A great place for a relaxing or adventure break.

Brynkinalt 10km & 20km & 5km4 Queen's Square, Church St, Chirk, Wrexham LL14 5HB, UK

There is plenty of variety in terrain over the route with forest tracks, footpaths and fields. It has a unique elevation (as you can see from the elevation graph). There is a total of 210metres* of elevation for the 10km* and 420metres* of elevation for the 20km*. There is an entry limit of 500 (across all races) and we expect it to fill quickly, so get in now! There will also be a children's race on the day for the budding trail runners.

Our event centre provides a great family day out for both competitors and also spectators, with food and drinks available, children's activities, race commentary all at the start / finish line located in the grounds. Spectators will have a great view of the starters and finishers. There will be toilets provided and some shelter in the registration marquee, which hopefully we won't need. But as it is Wales in March you can't be sure what the weather will do so make sure you dress for the conditions.

Due to the fact that all our events are held on private land, we are not able to provide you with course maps. As it is private land the route cannot be run before or after the race, so please don't try. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the day.
