Llanberis, Plas y Brenin, Newborough Forest


Route Description

Starting under the Finish Line arch you will run up the toll road for a short way before turning off into the beautiful trails of Newborough Forest. You’ll hit the sandy track and even get to run along the beach with views out to the Llyn Peninsula before heading back into transition and out onto the bike.

Don’t believe the rumours that this Island is flat! There are plenty of climbs and descents on the bike route to keep you on your toes. Starting from transition in the heart of Newborough Forest you climb up to the village of Newborough and take a right. Heading along sweeping bends and fast straights you then will take a left towards Llangaffo where the roads get noticeably narrower and deserving of some respect. Flowing down through the marshlands towards Malltraeth you will then turn left again back onto the main road in the direction of Newborough. Descend down the forest road once more and into transition ready to get your running shoes on.

The run takes place on the rugged trails of Newborough Forest. Running through the trees and down along the sand dunes is both wonderful and gruelling. The last 1.5km is almost entirely on sand but it only makes the accomplishment all the more rewarding.
