Welsh Wonder Run
The Conwy Marathon is back for 2021, with new 10 and 20 mile routes added…
In a year where foreign race participation doubling as a mini break is perhaps 'not worth the hassle', it may be worth looking a little closer to home. And what could be closer, or more scenic than picturesque North Wales?
After 2019’s success, this autumn will see the return of Conwy Marathon, a challenging, rural event which offers runners stunning scenery and breathtaking views of the North Wales coastline.
Scheduled for Sunday 26 September, organisers are anticipating a record number of runners will be eager to take the opportunity to test themselves against a route that includes the awe-inspiring Great Orme, Conwy Castle World Heritage Site, Colwyn Bay Promenade and finishes in Llandudno.
A 10 mile and 20 mile event will be included for the first time making the Conwy Marathon perfect for runners of all abilities and preferences and ideal for runners building up or tapering before other late season events.
Managing director of Always Aim High Events, Tim Lloyd, commented: “We’re so happy to bring the Conwy Marathon back to Llandudno after a great first year in 2019. We’re looking forward to staging this year’s event, especially as now we’ve been awarded the NWRAC Regional Championship for the marathon race. Top-level athletes from all over the region will be coming down to take part, we can’t wait!
"It is hoped that the race will attract visitors to this beautiful part of Wales from far and wide, this is crucial in our continued drive in supporting the local economy and local communities.”
Entries for the 2021 Conwy Marathon are now open. Head over to the event website for more details.
