Running Events in Wales

Wales’ vibrant cities and beautiful landscapes make it a popular place for runners of all standards. The major cities put on fun runs and big-crowd spectacles for beginners and seasoned runners. For the more hardened athletes wanting a bigger challenge, Wales’ rugged terrain provides plenty of trail running opportunities across marathon and ultra distances, in Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons, or go 135 miles along the Anglesey coast in the epic Ring o’Fire.
