New Course for 2024






What’s New?

For starters we are extending the cut-off to 26 hours to complete, this means both runners, mid-packers and those looking to walk the route can finish.

We are also adding a 2 Hour ‘Sleep Zone’ for those walking who want to rest.

The Race will now start from outside the Get Up Coffee HQ in outside the Get Up Coffee HQ in Nefyn at 22:00 Friday the 5th of July. You all get a free coffee before setting off to really get those endorphins pumping.

A night start means that you will be running into day light rather than the other way around which ensures  a day/evening finish and more of a crowd finish and atmosphere when you cross the finish line in Abererch Sands Holiday Park which is the Race Hub and Ultra Camping Village.

The free competitor’s shuttle from the Race hub on the evening of the race will take you to the start at Nefyn. This means you still have the same time to register and camp.

The course now follows the true route along the Welsh Coastal path, with no dog legs or long road segments.

You’ll visit coves and villages along the welsh coastal path going around the headland of the Llyn Peninsula, before going across Llanbedrog Headland to the trig point to taken in the stunning views before taking the Solomon’s Trail to Llanbedrog beach then along the coast to the finish.

Other Race Info

The Dragon Cheesy Pasta Party is now on the Saturday at 6pm with a bar and live music throughout the day, which means that you get to enjoy and celebrate your achievements, especially with the Ultra camping village at the finish area.

Watch and welcome the other competitors and your friends and family have a great location to follow the race as well as the food vans for nourishment.

Working with She Races all aid stations will be stocked with Sanitary products, extra toilets where needed, trackers at all races and extra night sweepers, breastfeeding areas at aid stations, Race Ts have 2 fits (Women & Men), deferral when pregnant and generous Cut-offs for both the 50M & 100M

Can I have supporters come and cheer me on and give me food?
How old do I have to be?

At the Pen Llyn Ultras we believe the opportunity of adventure should be open for all. The AR DAITH I DAFYDD ‘YN DY GWMNI FEL ERIOED (50 mile distance) is open to 13 to 16 year olds when accompanied by an adult.

It’s a thumbs up from the Beautifully Brutal Youth Ambassador Gwion Anwyl Aged 13.

How many Checkpoints will there be?
6 all stocked with food and water with signs and marshals along the way
