Snowdonia Trail Marathon Set To Sell Out

The Snowdonia Trail Marathon features an incredibly scenic route

Organisers of the Scott Snowdonia Trail Marathon are predicting a sell-out for their double header (full marathon and half) on Sunday 26 July. Always Aim High anticipates putting up the 'house full' notices before the end of March on the challenging event which features spectacular trails within Snowdonia National Park.

Rob Samuel at Always Aim High is delighted with the level of interest: “The event is on the verge of selling out and that’s just fantastic. When we designed this route we knew it had the potential to be popular because it features so many iconic trails, mountains (including Wales biggest peak, Snowdon) and views, but we never expected anything like this!

"The field looks like it will easily hit its year one limit of 750, which is amazing considering how far away from race-day we are.  From the high level of demand we are experiencing we fully expect the race to grow and establish itself one of the 'must do' running events in the UK”.

The full distance marathon and half marathon makes Scott Snowdonia Trail event the perfect target race for runners of all abilities. The routes are as beautiful as they are challenging. Both races start and finish in Wales’ adventure capital Llanberis, North Wales. From here the runners will leave the event village to take in either 26.2 or 13.1 miles of the most iconic and spectacular trails Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

As well as a fantastic day of racing, Always Aim High has promised lots of great entertainment. Rob Samuel added: “The event village will be awash with live music, a wide range of activities and loads of kids entertainment too. Above all you're guaranteed an incredibly warm welcome from the local Welsh communities!

"So if you’re taking part in the Scott Snowdonia Trial Marathon or live in the local area then make sure you bring the family down to Llanberis on Sunday 26 July, for what is going to be one of the best racing weekends in the 2015 calendar.”
