WELCOME TO NORTH WALES

Bridge_TuHwntIrBont

Welcome to North Wales for the fourth IAU World Trail Running Championships. We look forward to welcoming athletes from across the globe to the county of Conwy which in 2011 hosted the Commonwealth Mountain and Ultra Distance Championships.

The IAU World Trail opening and closing ceremony will be held in the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno, with the race taking place in the historic town of Llanrwst, in the Conwy Valley. Starting on the 17th century stone bridge ‘Y Bont Fawr’ over the river Conwy, the international athletes will continue past the former 15th century courthouse Tu Hwnt i’r Bont and the Grade I listed Gwydir Castle before climbing up in to Gwydyr Forest where the racing will take place on a scenic challenging lap.
