Ran this race last year, absolutely stunning.  If anyone is dithering about whether or not to enter, do it.  Superbly organised, great views and an awesome down hill after you've negotiated the "slight gradient" that is the Great Orme  A start and finish at the Castle, can't get better  Love it.  Very oddly this is still my PB course.  (1.38)

3 weeks to go . 1400 runners entered . Guess no one wants to talk about this race .

This will be my first ever half-marathon. As a local runner, I get to run the course quite regularly - in all weathers, it is a simply stunning route. Can't wait!

Does anyone know the closing date to enter?

What date is it I put it in the runners world search but nothing would like to do this as I do a lot of running in wales.

It's on the 20th November - if you type in Conwy Half Marathon, you should find the details. The searches don't always bring up every race, for some reason. Further entry details can also be found via the RunWales website.

Is ANYONE looking forward to this race ? Never known a thread be so quiet .

It will be my 3rd time at this event and is a favourite of mine .

Was only running this year because my son entered , bur he has pulled out with an ankle injury .

I said Chester marathon was going to be my last race , so maybe I will end with this one .

See you on Sunday .

There's a bit more activity on the facebook site, but I do like the banter that's normally on these threads

Who else is running this tomorrow? Good luck guys. Still not sure whether I'm going to go for it. I keep entering and never going...

Yeah, go for it Ellie, cracking race.  Does anyone know whether there'll be safety pins at registration, as I've lost mine ?

Oh god, is that something else to remember?! Have a good race John.

That was my first half marathon - and my word, I absolutely loved it. I guess we got very lucky with the weather - it was glorious and the sea views were almost as breathtaking as running up the Orme (or that sandy stretch on the cycle paths).

I can see me coming back next year.

Well done Steve! The weather was perfect, wasn't it. I didn't make Conwy in the end *hangs head in shame* but ran a sheepish 8 miles a bit further up the coast instead.

 Well done to everyone who made it!

Well it was also my first half marathon and I will certainly be entering again next year. 

 The weather was perfect and, despite the sandy bit near the end being tough going, I enjoyed it immensly.  Also seemed well organised

What a great race! Yep the sand was tough. The hills was tougher but still managed to knock off 6 minutes from my pb. Really thrilled!
The weather was fab and i swear ive caught the sun.
A great afternoon well organised and the chocolate digestives went down a treat.
I paid extra for a technical t shirt - well worth it!
Definitely one for next yr ! Just make sure you do plenty of hill runs !!
