10 Mile Road Running Championships

Bangor, North Wales

Wednesday 5 September 2018

The route will be primarily traffic free, fast and flat in a beautiful location close to Bangor. Accommodation and function will be at Bangor University.

Provisional details as follows...

The Course

The planned route utilises a local walking/ Sustrans cycling route called Lon Las Ogwen.

Lon Las Ogwen is a wonderful route offering views of the Snowdonia Mountains as it climbs south from the coast at Porth Penrhyn. Following the valley of Afon Cegin, the trail climbs on old railway cuttings through lovely broadleaf woodland to Tregarth and a turn around point at Bethesda.

The race will start in Porth Penrhyn, on the edge of the Menai Straits and follows a virtually traffic free out and back course. The out leg rises gently throughout its length, ensuring a fast second half.

During the event competitors will run underneath viaducts, through old railway tunnels and across raging rivers.

The ethos of the race is around inclusion and we really want to encourage runners of all abilities. Without a need for road closures we can facilitate extended cut off times if needed.

The evening venue

Accommodation and the evening function will be provided by Bangor University.

A pre-meal drink will be served in the Powis Hall (Neuadd Powis) before a 3 course meal in Neuadd Pritchard Jones.

Evening entertainment is yet to be finalised but will hopefully be live music followed by a disco.

Its a gorgeous venue and the food is of a high standard.

Accommodation will be provided in university halls, modern single en-suite rooms.


I will provide a further update as soon as possible.
