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 estimate your finish time for the entered distance - as the start for all events is staggered, and you'll get your start time ahead of event day. Start times will vary between 7am - 10am.

Cut Off's. Any runner reaching the following Checkpoints beyond the cut off, shall be retired from the race. There will not be any movement on this, for the safety of all marshals and comptetitors.
