New Race HQ is Village Bakery 'Gluten Freedom' site on Ash Road South Wrexham LL13 9UG. 

With over 20 years of loyal support of the Village Bakery we continue to bring you this fast, flat and chip-timed half. Starting on Dunster Road and finishing at 'The Club House' Oak Road on Wrexham Industrial Estate, this classic race is popular with some of the fastest runners in the region as well as those tackling the distance for the first time. It is a well marshalled course with plenty of support and drink stations.

£300.00 cash for 1st, £200.00 for 2nd & £100.00 for 3rd Open male and female as well as cash prizes for 1st place in Vet Categories.  Team prize for 1st Male and Female Teams as well as the tasty traditional Welsh baked goodies for all finishers courtesy of the Village Bakery Wrexham. Look out for the 2019 new bespoke medal. We will have temporary road closures and an increased parking for the 2019 event.This race always sells out well in advance so register early.

Free entry to elite runners who have posted a 1.10 or quicker half (men) or 1.20 half (women), 2.30 or quicker marathon (men) or 2.50 (women) in 2017/2018.  Please contact us for consideration or with details of other times at the other classic distances.

Due to the time of year and responsibility to our marshals we have a cut off time of 2hrs 45mins. A sweep vehicle will be following the runners at this pace and you may be asked to board at 10 miles if it is clear you will not make the cut off point.

Headphones are not allowed during this race in accordance with UK Athletics rules as the course does not have a full road closure with the exception of bone conducting headphones.
