|The inspiring home-straight view|
This Saturday morning saw the 7 along with the first snowdrops of 2015. Even a brave primrose was peeping through the grass in Castle (Bangor, Gwynedd) grounds, the venue for this event.
The vibe was friendly as the 100 or so runners, including runners, of all abilities and ages took part in the 5k trail run.
This free, timed run takes place every Saturday morning. Starting from the castle courtyard the undulating course loops around the wooded grounds and opens out to spectacular views over the Strait towards the mountains, Puffin Island and the Great in the distance.
This is a great event to take part in; all you need to do is register online with beforehand and bring along your barcode.
Ty Holiday Cottage, Bethesda, Snowdonia, is only 10 away from the start line, so why not book a stay for a weekend or longer and take part in one of the most spectacular in the country.
