2nd edition of the commonwealth championships

The 2nd Commonwealth Mountain and Ultradistance Running Championships will be hosted in three spectacular north-west Wales locations - Llandudno, Llanberis (Snowdon) and Newborough Forest, Anglesey.  The combined events of mountain races (Up & Down), ultra-distance races (24 hr event) and trail running (50+km off road) for both men and women will produce a long weekend international festival of running.

It is anticipated that over 25 Commonwealth Countries and over 200 of the finest athletes in the world will compete in the 2011 Championships in North Wales. And to illustrate the astonishing level of endurance required in these events, leading athletes in the 24 hr race will complete somewhere between 240 and 260km in the 24 hrs.

Part of the weekend will see a full programme of open races across the disciplines of road, mountain and trail running targeted at both local athletes and the ‘running tourists’ from the UK and beyond. The British Junior Mountain Running Championships will also be integrated into the event, taking place on the Saturday (24 March) in Llanberis. A series of community and children’s activities and events will be scheduled in the period leading up to as well as during the event weekend.
