Re: Wrexham Half and Full Marathon

Clashes with our MTCT season's finale I'm afraid!!

but hey, it's a free country..


Re: Wrexham Half and Full Marathon

I believe it's the same place as the Village Bakery half & North Wales 10miler? Should be good, as Run Wales generally put on the best events at reasonable cost (in my opinion), and don't bombard you with a plastic bag full of flyers!

If you can't do this one, Run Wales other new event is the Chirk half marathon in the summer. From descriptions sounds like a nice scenic route around the castle and countryside.

I think if you do all 8 events in the year, you get a prize or discounted races for the following year (maybe!)
1. Rhyl 10 mile - 22.02.15
2. Wrexham half / full - 08.03.15
3. Snowdonia half - 31.05.15
4. Runfest Wales(5k / 10k / half / full) - 28.06.15
5. Chirk Castle half - 12.07.15 ("...The Castle kitchens will be open on the day to provide you with a feast fit for a king!")
6. North Wales half - 26.07.15
7. Bangor 10k - October 15
8. Conwy half - November 15

Get the dates in the diary!

Agree with Neil on the RunWales races. Some cracking events there - I'll be up for the Chirk Castle half in July.
