THE COURSE: The start overlooks the harbour, in the center of the village just past Manana restaurant and for the first kilometer the race runs through the high street and at 1.3km channels up Lon Pentre Bach to the Deucoch, then heads left down to the Sarn Bach crossroads. Heading straight over there’s a section of narrow lanes heading towards the far end of the beach. Then a short section of road running round the bay, then the main hill ‘Tocyn Brutal’ that is a steep track lasting for 0.3 of a mile (picking the right line up here will make it so much easier for you!). Some undulating roads for 2 miles, looping back round till you head down onto the golf course before joining the far end of the beach. One kilometer along the beach (including some groynes) to the finish just before the middle slip ramp.

THE COURSE: A new route was introduced in 2017 which was received with great acclaim. It’s a cracking course now starting in the center of Abersoch and heading out to Llanengan, Hell’s Mouth & Llangian. There’s a timing point at 10K before the route sweeps back to Llanengan and joins the main road to Sarn Bach before heading to the golf course track and the far end of Abersoch’s main beach. You join the beach and the start of ‘Beach 1.1‘, a new timed section that clocks your time along the beach (1.1km) back to the finish. Many runners debate the quickest way to tackle the beach, this will help you decide!

THE VIEWS: Each of the courses are stunning, so while you’re running don’t forget to take in the scenery. Views of Cardigan Bay, St Tudwal’s Islands, Hell’s mouth & Bardsey Island, Abersoch itself & the golf course. This is one of the many reasons it is an exhilarating memorable race. Take it all in & Enjoy
