Trail Marathon Wales is launched
June 2012 will see a great new event coming to Wales. Trail Marathon Wales aims to be a “challenging, but stunning” full (and half) distance trail marathon set in the world-renowned MTB heartland that is Coed y Brenin…
The MTB centre set in the Snowdonia National Park, one of most renowned mountain biking areas in the UK – if not the world.
The event release states:
Taking place on the 23rd of June 2012, Trail Marathon Wales will have full (26.2 mile / 42.1 km) and half (13.1 mile / 21 km) marathon race routes in the stunning trails and tracks of the world-renowned Coed y Brenin forest in the Snowdonia National Park. This unique marathon aims to be Wales’ first true trail marathon taking in fully marked trail single track, forest roads and paths in some of the most stunning forestry and heathland in the UK.
We are working closely with Forestry Commission Wales at Coed y Brenin to deliver what will be a race route to remember. The exact course details will be released in the early Spring of 2012.
We have provisionally recruited a number of elite athletes to take part in the race, who will ensure that the event has a highly competitive element – whilst hopefully attracting good club runners and first time trail marathoners alike.
Entries for the event open online at the event website next Tuesday, the 1st November.
