Marathon Eryri (formerly known as Snowdonia Marathon) - 28th October 2023


From the organisers: "Marathon Eryri has been voted Best British Marathon twice. The demanding and spectacular route which encircles Yr Wyddfa – the highest peak in Wales – has served to makes this an iconic event in the running calendar."


The route (for those who love a challenge): "The route follows the A4086 and climbs to the top of the Llanberis Pass (Pen y Pass 1.100ft). Dropping down to the Pen Y Cwyryd junction, the race then follows the old road along to the campsite until it joins the A498. This 2km section is farm track, downhill, then the surface returns to the tarmac. There is a short, sharp uphill back up to the main road at the campsite. The route then continues to the Beddgelert (200ft) and then continues along the A4085 to Waunfawr. From here it is a rapid climb to about 1,200ft at Bwlch y Groes (a short length is unmetalled) and then downhill to the finish in Llanberis."

A short flat bit and then even steeper going down. I have utmost respect for the fell runners. I pushed really hard for last 2 miles as I hoped to get inside 1 hour, which I just did. I really enjoyed the event and look forward to my next fell run'

From the organisers: "The event takes place in the truly remarkable Hambleden Valley, with mile after mile of staggering Chilterns' beauty, picture perfect flint stone villages, country pubs and a fair few hills.

Gloucester 10k - 25th June 2023


From the organisers: "We think it really captures the Gloucester spirit and shows off what Gloucester can do.

The aim of the route is to showcase Gloucester so it passes the Cathedral, through the Docks and Gloucester Quays and there is a run along the canal towpath.  Given the intention of taking in the sites it does twist in the odd place, but is still a fast course."
