Following the successful re-invention of the Llandudno 10 Mile Road Race in 2011, the event returns this year on the 17th of June and will once again hold the Welsh Championships for the distance. This year's event will also form the ninth fixture in the 2012 Run Wales Series.
The popularity of this race is expected to grow each year due to it's scenic location and picturesque course which takes athletes from the start on the promenade, around the famed victorian seaside town and finishes back on the promenade, alongside the Atlantic Ocean.
(The 2011 race gets underway on the Llandudno Promenade).
The Llandudno 10 has previously held numerous Welsh Championships and has been won by Welsh distance running greats such as Nigel Adams, Steve Brace and by Olympic Steeplechaser Roger Hackney who made a rare appearance at the 10 mile distance in Llandudno.
Simon Jones (Swansea Harriers) was the men's champion in 2011 beating Kenyan runner Elisha Tarus, leaving him in the final stages amongst an impressed crowd of local onlookers and athletics fans from around the country. Simon isn't expected to defend his title in 2012 but scores of the best Welsh distance runners are expected to descend on North Wales to compete for the prestigious title. The ladies event was won in 2011 by Sarah Johnson (Trentham) in 58:30 and like the men's competition will attract a high standard of competition.
In addition to the standard at the front of the field, the event is ideal for runners of all abilities who are looking to take part in a well organised large road race in an attempt to post a new pb.
