You may have heard about trail running and would like to give it a try, but don’t know where to start? Lockdown has given so many a new or renewed interest in running. For those who would like to try something new and give trail running a go or ‘Walk and Talk’ in beautiful surroundings, PenLlyn Ultras have a variety of races and challenges from 10k, 1/2, and full marathon distances to 50, 75 and 100-mile trails.

From personal experience, I can tell you that these challenges take place in absolutely breathtaking countryside and there is something for everyone.  Understandably, with the current Covid-19 situation, this year’s races will have been impacted. Adapting to the ‘new normal’,  PenLlyn Ultra has scheduled a series of virtual races. I am participating in a virtual race myself later this month and talk more about that nearer the date.

Check out their race dates and future events, visit for details.
