The Aberystywth course runs along the promenade, Marine Terrace, New Promenade and S Marine Terrace from end to end. It starts on Marine Terrace heading towards Constitution Hill, then running back along the promenade towards the RNLI Lifeboat Station. The course then follows the national cycle path to u turn in Maesyrafon Car Park. The course then returns down the cycle path to S Marine Terrace to return back to the finish line.
The start line is on the promenade. Please make your way to this event via Terrace Road. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation we'll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.
The following roads will be closed as part of the event: Victoria Terrace, Marine Terrace, Riverside Terrace and New Promenade, King Street, Terrace Road and South Marine Terrace. Please bear this in mind when planning your route and parking.
There is no official parking, so please park in town centre car parks and walk to the start.
Car sharing or public transport is advisable. The start is just a short walk from the town centre car parks & stations.
The event site and route is hard standing. This route is also flat, so easily accessible for wheelchair users and pushchairs.

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
We will be giving away bottled water at the finish line. But due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and our plans to reduce single use plastics at our events we encourage participants to bring their own water or hydration fluids on the day.
