Race Route

Below is a brief description of the route. The race is a mixture of road and on track running. Be aware that some of the tracks may be quite rough in places.
The 10K race starts and finishes on Beach Road, Y Felinheli, these will be sign posted. The route goes into the Vaynol Estate at the far corner of the Marina in Y Felinheli, following the track that runs parallel to the Straits. It then joins a private road to the main house and out to Parc Menai, doing a loop there before re-entering the Vaynol. The route back also passes through private land to reach the track again and the returns back to Y Felinheli. (See map below).
The course will be marshalled, marked at kilometre intervals and with arrows throughout.
Everyone seems to enjoy the race as it is a pleasant, ‘mostly’ flat (?!) course. Note some of the route is off-road along a rough, non-tarmac track.

NB. Unfortunately runners cannot practice the full route before the event as access to the private land and roads within the Estate is only permissible on the race evening and we risk harming the goodwill of Vaynol Park residents who give their permission each year if people trespass beforehand.

Pulling Out of the Race

We are normally unable to offer a refund if a runner has to pull out for any reason before the race. (All receipts from the race go towards the Felinheli Festival and the race costs). We will however accept a substitution if informed in good time before the race night. (Substitutions can also be made for on-line entrants via TDL). We would appreciate being told if you are unable to run as this might enable another runner to compete if we are full up.


Not guaranteed, but on count back we have had very few wet races!

And Finally….

We hope you enjoy the race especially after reading all the above and thank-you for supporting us.
