This year’s Anglesey Festival of Running will take place on Sunday 26 September and supporting the main marathon event around the island, will be the half marathon, the 10k, a 5k and children’s races.  The marathon route runs through three Sites of Special Scientific Interest, alongside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty through two village festivals and the last stronghold of the red squirrel in the UK.

Entries are open now and runners are being encouraged to run for one of the three charities that are benefiting from the Anglesey Festival of Running.  

DebRA is the only UK charity set up to work on behalf of sufferers of a genetic condition called EB (Epidermolysis Bullosa).  This is a condition which means that children who suffer from it have to endure hours of pain every day and whose skin can blister with the slightest touch.

ShelterBOX is the second charity who offer help, shelter and dignity to those who’ve suffered due to disasters that occur around the world.

The Alzheimer’s Society is the third charity to benefit from fund raising at the Anglesey Festival of Running and they are organising their memory walk to coincide with the marathon event.

The festival atmosphere will continue all day with a farmer's market selling local produce, demonstrations and activities from outdoor pursuits companies and a host of other activities, as well as a chance to meet Olympic Gold Medallist Colin Jackson.

Entries are now open for all races.
