There is just enough time to dust off those running shoes and get training. It is one of the most stunning half marathons in the UK, with what has to be the best start line – the completely closed road over the iconic Menai Suspension Bridge.
You can cover the half marathon distance of opt for the slightly shorter 10k. Both flow downhill through Menai Bridge town centre and along the winding closed roads to Beaumaris, the route is flanked by breath-taking views of the Snowdonia National Park and the Menai Straits.
The route then returns to the finish line in the centre of Menai Bridge.
For more serious runners, this is the perfect pre-London and Conwy Marathon preparation, this beautiful undulating course with stunning scenery is perfect for an early season PB!
