This is a fast, runnable, mainly there and back course, which utilises the All Wales Coastal Path from Pwllheli to Carreg y Defaid.
The Race course starts by Pwllheli Golf Club, where runners will run along the Costal Path route in a westerly direction towards Llanbedrog. After approx 2.0 km, you leave the trackway and onto a grassy path, through a small metal gate. Proceed along the path for approx. 0.5km where you cross a minor road (feed station) and back onto the grassy path. The Path follows the headland of Carreg y Defaid at a gentle climb before a short descent to a timber kissing gate. Proceed along the path through the fields where you will be met by further kissing gates.
At the end of the field section, you descend a set of steps and onto Llanbedrog beach then a short beach section where you will be met by the turnaround point at the 5km point.
The route then heads back along the beach in the opposite direction, passing the steps and continues along the beach. A Marshal will direct you off the beach section via a short steep climb and back onto the coastal path route towards Pwllheli. At the sand dunes near the property know as Y Big, you will veer off the main track and run along a seaward path on the right, which leads onto Cruggan beach. Then it’s a 2km or so beach run towards the finish area at Pwllheli beach. Toes may get wet during high tide.
