The course takes you through the trees onto the beautiful winding woodland trails which once hosted the Commonwealth Mountain and Ultra Distance Running Championships. With loads of single track trails, quiet forest, sea views and sandy running trails there is something for everyone in this race.
Cani-cross runners will have their own start line and start time to avoid congestion with other runners. Runners are limited to one dog and must have the correct kit. Please see event FAQ's for further information.

Start by running on the wide stoney forest track alongside the beach where you’ll catch glimpses of the Llyn Peninsula and Llanddwyn Island. As you draw level with the island, turn right and head further in to the pine forest and on to single track and sandy running trails. The course loops round to a final section on the path that forms the border between the forest and the open Newborough Warren with open views out to sea. A final right turn brings runners back to where they started and a heroes welcome from the spectators on the finish line.
You must be at least 17 years old to take part in this race.
