Promo

The finish line is unique to you...at exactly 12noon on 14/5/22, 24 hours after the mass race start, the race shall stop and the Solo Runners and Teams furthest South on the National Trail, shall be declared the winners. You can walk, run or a bit of both - the task is simply to endure, and see how far you can get as the clock counts down.

2021 Winner, Andy Mearns towards the end of his 24hr adventure! 

Starting on the North Wales Coast at Prestatyn, runners will journey South along the National Trail, with well stocked feed stations and break options along the way - until the 24 hours are up and a halt is brought to proceedings - with GPS trackers allowing us to monitor your progress and determine your finish position on the trail at exactly 24 hours. We will set up support checkpoints with indoor facilities, where we'll have provisions and your drop bags for you, but all participants must have their support driver and vehicle, to collect you at the end of your race. Your support driver/team can meet you at any point and as frequently as you like throughout the event.

Checkpoint locations:

Coed Llangwfan Car Park (16 miles - outdoors), Llandegla Community Hall (28 miles), Froncysyllte Village Hall (43 Miles), Trefonen Village Hall (54 Miles) Forden Village Hall (76 Miles)

The event start and registration is located at the NOVA CENTRE, Prestatyn. Registration and Kit Checks shall take place between 10.30 and 11.30am for a 12 noon prompt, start.

The TEAM ENTRY has a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 members. Only 1 person shall run/walk at a time, and changeovers can be made at any time, but each team member MUST cover a distance. The team event runs alongside the SOLO event, and has the same start and finish times. The advantage of the team setup is that support and transport are more easily arranged.
