IMPORTANT INFORMATION - CHANGE TO THE COURSE
Distance/Course - The run will start from the bottom of Cwm Ivy, utilising the forest and the beach, but the course has been changed from previous West Glam races. A course inspection and risk assessment has revealed that due to beach erosion there is 1 mile of rocks, pebbles and slippery clay beds which is too risky for runners.
A new route has been created.
It is the same 3k towards the beach, then a 1k circuit on the beach and forest, then return on the first 3k in reverse. Runners may be running towards each other on the 3k section but the path is wide enough. Runners will need to keep to their RIGHT.
A race briefing before the start will remind runners of the changes and conditions of the course.We are confident this course will be just as beautiful as previous years.

Age - Athletes must be 15 years of age or over
Headphones - any athlete wearing headphones will be automatically disqualified.
