The event consists of 2 races. There will be a 10km* route and Half Marathon* route race. The route uses some of the excellent bespoke running trails now installed at Llandegla by Clwydian Range Runners. The Half Marathon race is uses parts of the 10km route but is mostly a separate route.
There is a total of 390metres* of elevation for the 10km* and 780metres* of elevation for the Half Marathon*. There is an entry limit of 500 (across both events) and we expect it to fill quickly, so get it now! There will also be a children's race on the day for the budding trail runners.
Our races at Llandegla start and finish just behind the visitors centre ensuring a great atmosphere for all. With copious well established mountain biking and walking routes, trail running is a new adventure at Coed Llandegla

The 10km Challenge takes place on the Saturday where the races take place on the Sunday. You can run, walk or crawl the 10km Challenge. Its not timed, as such (there will be a race clock at the end so you can see how long it took you) and theres no prizes and no results.
Its about you and the challenge and completing 10km course with the support but wihtout the pressure of a race. A perfect next step if you've just completed the couch to 5km. Everyone will get a finishers medal and a unique event t-shirt.
Canicross is a fantastic sport where you run trails with your dog.
Its recommended you hold appropriate 3rd party insurance, just in case your dog injures someone or another dog.
In a canicross race your dog is attached to you with a bungee line, which goes round your waist. The dog wears a padded dog harness. This set up ensures maximum comfort and safety for both runner and dog.
If necessary an open muzzle can be used.
