Effective as of January 2024.

Both races start at the Athletics track in Colwyn bay, from here they head along to the promenade and head East along the coastline where both races have their turning points for you to retrace your steps back to the athletics track.

Both race routes are mainly very flat with just a couple of short hills.

The Metric Marathon distance 26.2km (16.3 miles) is an ideal stepping stone for runners to progress from a half marathon through to a full 26.2 mile marathon.

The Metric Half Marathon distance 13.1km (8.13 miles) is an ideal stepping stone for runners to progress from a 10k to a 13.1 miles half marathon.

Or you could use the metric marathon to test your pace on this flatish fast route for an upcoming spring marathon?
