New Anglesey Half Marathon
The Island Race - Anglesey Half Marathon 2012Sunday 13th May 2012
A new and exciting race for your 2012 calendar, for the first time ever you can run across the World famous Menai Bridge free from traffic and follow the coast road to the awesome Beaumaris Castle, and back. It is a flat and fast course with stunning scenery which will inspire you either to your half marathon personal best or just to have a go. You will have the added pleasure and peace of mind as most of the route is on closed traffic free roads.
Might be wrong but I can't help thinking you have killed off te Anglesey marathon. We were informed that the marathon would have a new franchise (you?) this started the alarm bells. Then we were informed by the new franchise the marathon for last year was cancelled. The this week the new date given of April 29th had also been cancelled and an exciting half marathon was taking place. Could you please have the courage and approach Menter Mon to carry on, if it ain't broken don't try to fix it. VERY disappointed.
Looks like a great race, but it clashes with the re-vitalised Chester half on the same day
Sorry to butt in but is anyone going to do this travelling from Manchester/ Lancashire way?
I am dying to sign up but I have no car.
I have travelled the area extensively and I would rather not get there on public transport, especially with a 9AM start time.
All advice greatly appreciated
very tempted to do this one. will be travelling from bolton P-Ninja, so possible lift available
compo, was tempted by Leeds to on same day, but ive yet to do a welsh run (had to pull out of llandudno 10, cardiff half and conwy half last year). this has no hills for you either lol
anyone know how many have entered so far?
hmm, seems like a lack of basic information on the event website.
Please Note - there will be a strict cut off time of 11.15am applied on the return through Beaumaris. Runners who have not returned to the drink station in Beaumaris by this time will not be permitted to continue. This is for safety reasons due to the re opening of the road closure.
any clue as the distance this occurs (may help dicide if someone can make it through the cut off point)
water stations, other than the one listed for the cut off, are there any others, and again at what distance points?
i especially like the blurb bit where is says the entry fee includes a free tshirt, not really free when its covered by the entry fee.
think i'll give it a week to mull over, see if questions get answered before i part with the entry fee
i had a reply to my message i sent them John.
the cut off point of 11.15 is around the 9 mile mark, i would imagine most would make it through.
water stations 5 miles / 9 miles / finish, more would of been nice
around 470 entered so far. chester full, now leeds full too, hopefully this may help push the numbers up here now.
