Wrexham Running Festival

Sunday 11th March 2018

2018 will see the Wrexham Marathon host the North Wales Marathon Championships.

Please note, online entries will close 4th March. If we still have bibs spare you will be able to enter on the day at registration, this will be standard open entries only.  All Regional Championships entries must be completed by the 4th March, no entries on the day will be taken..

Starting and finishing in Wrexham town centre, there’s sure to be a good crowd cheering you on your way and welcoming you over the finish line for what will be a fast course for both races with a few ups and downs along the way, 2 of the hills from the 2015 race have been removed making it a race with even greater PB potential.

20 miler added to the festival! a fantastic distance to prepare you for a full marathon, London, Manchester? a great training race and time to recover.

All routes have great PB potential.

The full marathon will start off at 9am with the half marathon starting at 10:30am, both routes meet up on Redwither Lane and run the remaining 9 miles together, this is fantastic as the half runners can support the full runners, the last 8miles are run on roads/pavements/paths through busy residential areas, so you are sure to have the great support of the Wrexham community to help you back to the finish.
