Carolyn Stamper-Clark finished 2nd in the C15, 2016 – and thoroughly enjoyed herself, saying: ‘Clwydian 15- What an amazing route! This goes down as my favourite race to date. The scenery was incredible. The marshals were fantastic, encouraging and full of smiles. Well marked….. And the pub owners were very friendly too! And!, it’s the furthest I’ve ever ran, yey! Will definitely be back…’

Jessica Sznerch made the C30 her first Ultra and said ‘Thanks for a fantastic race today Joe- so well organised and well marked (Even I managed to stay on course!!) really enjoyed the 30- my first distance over half marathon! Can’t quite believe it! Thanks again also to the wonderful marshals throughout the course who kept smiling despite the drizzle and fog- youre all amazing!!’

The Clwydian 15 has become a favourite for many, the route being praised for it’s variety and scenic, challenging nature.  Setting off half an hour after the Ultra runners, the route takes in the Northern end of the 30 loop, coming back down from the ridge at just before the half way point, to gain a distance of 15 miles. The ascent involved is considerable, at just a touch over 3600feet.

The Clwydian 30 returns for it’s third running in 2017 – it is a challenging route and a 10 hour time limit is enforced for completion. That said, EVERY CHALLENGE IS AN OPPORTUNITY – so why not get up in those hills and get training for a great challenge in 2017! The route is a new one for this year, with some extra ascent added, and you’ll get to explore the range further to the South during the 30 mile route that takes in 7283ft of ascent.
