The Pilgrims Trail Ultras & Pilgrims Marathon

Friday 7th June 2024 - Sunday 9th June 2024

Event Details

Hundreds of years have past since pilgrims in their thousands were finding their way to Bardsey Island, drawn there by stories of the special peace to be found at the edge of the western world –  the place of the setting sun, with only the vast ocean between them and the unknown.

The Pilgrims Trails links ancient churches dedicated to the saints of the 6th century ,with the pilgrims 60 race start from Bangor Cathedral which is built on a low-lying and inconspicuous site, possibly so as not to attract the attention of Vikings from the sea, the pilgrims marathon starting in the foothills of welsh forts at Tri Ceri and the 2 Day event starting from Holywell.

The trail entwines with the North wales coastal path, providing competitors with jaw dropping views from inland to the coast as they race towards the finish.

Race finish is at the picturesque former fishing village Aberdaron at the western tip of the Llyn Peninsula.
