The North Wales Half Marathon was first held in 2013 and saw around 400 runners cross the finish line. Although it is a challenging route the location between the mountains and sea near Conwy is stunning and I'm sure the race will grow quickly! The midday start means that you can stay in bed a little longer too! The race HQ is at the Mulberry Bar and Restaurant where they do a cracking carvery!
The start and finish is at the Mulberry Marina which is about 1.5 miles away from Conwy. Runners start off along hard sand for 1.2 miles before joining a cycle path continuing onto Penmaenmaur and along the Promenade as far as the sailing club. Runners then head on through the village centre and past the Mountan View Pub until they reach the top of the mountain which offers stunning views before the descent back down to the finish.
