Snowdrops and Penrhyn Parkrun

The inspiring home-straight view
This Saturday morning saw the 7th Penrhyn Parkrun along with the first snowdrops of 2015. Even a brave primrose was peeping through the grass in Penrhyn Castle (Bangor, Gwynedd) grounds, the venue for this event. 

The vibe was friendly as the 100 or so runners, including canicross 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 Menai Strait towards the Snowdonia mountains, Puffin Island and the Great Orme in the distance. 

This is a great event to take part in; all you need to do is register online with Parkrun beforehand and bring along your barcode. 

Ty Ganol Holiday Cottage, Bethesda, Snowdonia, is only 10 mins 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 parkruns in the country.
