The North Wales Path – Run Challenge is a 2 day, fully guided and supported ‘run’ following the 60 mile linear trail, from Prestatyn to Bangor. It has a total ascent of 7,700ft and reaches a maximum height of 1,396ft. The route involves largely shadowing the North Wales coastline, but comes inland at times to explore the foothills of the mountains that the area is famous for. Passing many areas of interest and through some wonderful North Walian countryside, the challenge over 2 days provides a truly rewarding weekend – and we’ll be there for you every step of the way. Guiding, encouraging, carrying your kit and generally helping you get the most from a fantastic experience!
We are offering a limited number of spaces for this challenge, and will be providing the following, over the course of the weekend, to make your journey along the trail, as safe, stress free and enjoyable as possible:
Fully Qualified Guides - will be leading you every step of the way – you’ll have no worries about getting lost, just relax and enjoy your surroundings and the challenge!
Checkpoint support – The days are split into 6 sections – approximately 5-7 miles in length, and at the end of each one we’ll meet you with your spare gear should you wish to change clothing policy, first aid provision and lots of food and drink to keep you going!
Transport – It’s a linear route. We’ll provide coach transport to get you back to your car at the end of both days. Day 1 starts in Prestatyn, day 2 in Conwy.
We will be averaging around 3.7mph moving time – a brisk walking pace for most, with rest stops at each CP, so the emphasis is on keeping going, not speed! Think of walking briskly the climbs, jogging the flat sections and running the descents and you’ll end up with this average pace, or thereabouts. The pace will be dictated by the Run Leaders.
