Jones o Gymru Anglesey Half Marathon and 10k 2023 Road Running Half Marathon
Fast running flanked by breathtaking views of the Snowdonia National Park and the Menai Straits it's no wonder that this race has become a firm favourite for so many and earned the title of the UK's most beautiful Half Marathon. The race has one of the most incredible and iconic start lines in the country - a completely closed road Menai Suspension Bridge.
The Anglesey Half Marathon starts on the iconic Menai Suspension Bridge before flowing downhill through Menai Bridge town centre and along the winding closed roads to Beaumaris. Pass the famous and near perfect Beaumaris Castle then head up towards Llanfaes and complete a small loop before returning the way you came, taking in the breathtaking views of Snowdonia, to finish in Menai Bridge. This partially closed road course is a stunning showcase of some of North Wales most beautiful scenery.
