Welcome to The Island Race - The iconic Anglesey Half Marathon
A new and exciting race, the Anglesey Half Marathon takes runners across the world famous Menai Bridge free from traffic and follows the coast road to the awesome Beaumaris Castle, and back. It is a beautiful undulating course with stunning scenery which will inspire you either to your half marathon personal best or just to have a go. You will have the added pleasure and peace of mind as most of the route is on closed traffic free roads.
For 2013 we have changed the date in order to accomodate as many runners as possible, the race provides the perfect pre-London preperation for those lucky enought to have an entry, alternatively it is just a beautiful early season run for you to enjoy.
Organised by local running enthusiasts and professional event organisers, the event will be one not to miss! The route could not be better and the day promises to be one not to forget. The £22 (plus admin fee) entry fee includes, electronic chip timing, event family entertainment, a unique free commemorative race T shirt, a bespoke finishers medal and refreshments at the race finish line. We believe that this offers excellent value and a unique opportunity to run this iconic route.
If the half marathon sounds too much, simply come along and soak up the atmosphere, there will be heaps to see and do, including kiddies and junior races. All of the races will start by running across the Menai Suspension Bridge.
