“Hi all at RunWales, just wanted to feedback about the Snowdonia Half on Sunday. It was the first time I have done this race and willDEFINITELY be back next year. I thought it was really well organised, had great local support, the town of Llanrwst is a really scenic venue, the route at times was stunning and the race was a fantastic challenge. It had everything from tough hills, steep downward inclines, amazing views, the Welsh weather (which helped to stop over heating!) and amazing support. Well done and see you next year!” PETER.

“Many congratulations! The Snowdonia Half was a fantastic event on Sunday. The scenery was amazing, the organisation was excellent, the marshals were so friendly and encouraging and even the weather was just right for running! Thank you so much!” HELEN.

“just finished the snowdonia half! What a run, unbelievably beautiful but unbelievably tough! There was three of us running and one of us was pretty unfit! Despite this we made the Forrest hill without stopping!”JAMES.

“I took part in the Snowdonia half yesterday, what a fantastic race!”VICKI.

“would like to say many many thanks to every 1 for running the snowdon half marathon me and my lad ben were made up with this it was great well marshald org and run the staff were great and we will be doing it again thanks to every 1 for this well done” BOB.

In short:  Tough, hilly first half but fast second half

In full: This was my first half marathon and I loved (almost) every minute of it. The hill at 3 miles in is incredibly tough and caused all but around 10% of runners to walk it at some points, but after that it undulates for a while and then drops down dramatically, so you can make up time on the fast downhill sections in the second half. Fantastically scenic in places, and has a great atmosphere, though you may find yourself running alone at points as the field stretches out.

All in all a great experience, if painful at times. Would certainly consider doing again (with a tad more hill training!).
