Organiser's Description

The HR Anchor ABERSOCH 10K boasts an exhilarating course in one of the most stunning locations.

With a post-race entertainment on the beach including live music, DJ sets and a beach bar, it's a great day of running and celebrations.

All runners will receive a bespoke medal, with energy drinks & snacks at the finish. Each kilometre is accurately marked out with distance flags and we have plenty of support to keep you on track and to encourage you to the finish.

Course Details

A fantastic course with the first kilometer running through the main high street and forks right along Lon Pentre Bach to the Deucoch, then heads left down to the Sarn Bach crossroads. Heading straight over there’s a section of narrow lanes stretching towards the far end of the beach with a short section of road running round the bay before reaching ‘Tocyn Brutal‘ a challenging hill that is a rough track lasting for 0.3 of a mile (picking the right line up here will make it so much easier for you!). Some undulating roads for 2 miles, looping back round till you head down onto the golf course before joining the far end of the beach. An exhilarating kilometer along the beach (including some groynes) to the finish just before the middle slip ramp

What's Included

All runners will receive a pre-race pack with details of the race route, timings and where to pick up their race bib. Race bibs will be collected Friday evening before the race or on the morning of the race itself.
