Starting at Prestatyn seafront, the National Trail waymarkers are followed up into the hills on the edge of the town and continue in a Southerly direction, with the scenery and terrain becoming more and more beautiful, and challenging as you go! The registration process will require you to choose between 1 of 2 start times for each distance - with those taking more time going off an hour before those who will complete more quickly.
