Returning this autumn after 2019’s huge success is the Conwy Marathon, offering runners stunning scenery and breath-taking views of the North Wales coastline.

This year, the Always Aim High Events team is expecting even more runners to take the opportunity to put themselves against a route that takes them around the awe-inspiring Great Orme, Conwy Castle World Heritage Site, out to the beautiful Colwyn Bay Promenade before doubling back along the stunning beachfront to finishing in Llandudno. Brand new for 2021 are a 10 mile and 20 mile event that makes the Conwy Marathon perfect for runners’ training schedules. Take a look at the full route here.

Always Aim High Events are also incredibly proud that the 2021 Conwy Marathon has been selected to feature in the North Wales Regional Athletics Council Road Running Championships. Full details of eligibility can be found here.

Always Aim High Events’ Managing Director Tim Lloyd said: “We’re so happy to bring the Conwy Marathon back to Llandudno after a great first year in 2019. It’s been a really popular addition to our calendar and this year we’ve added the 10miler & 20miler distances too. We’re looking forward to staging this year’s event, especially as now we’ve been awarded the NWRAC Regional Championship for the Marathon race. Top-level athletes from all over the region will be coming down to take part, we can’t wait!

“The 10 & 20 Milers will be perfect for runners building up or tapering before other late season events.

“The event, supported by Conwy Council, will be one of Wales newest road marathons and will be marketed to runners from all over the UK and beyond. The race will hope to attract visitors to this beautiful part of Wales from afar, this is crucial in our continued drive in supporting the local economy and local communities.”
