The route started in Cardiff Bay and Arry headed west on the Wales Coast Path in a clockwise direction. On completion of the coast path she returned to Prestatyn, where she joined the Offa’s Dyke path in a southerly direction until it joined with the Wales Coast path for the final stretch.
Wales Coast Path (33 days)
Offas Dyke (6 days)
Final day (a gratuitous 1 mile to finish!)
The run was carried out in roughly 28 mile, daily segments, the longest day was 38miles on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
The terrain was extremely rugged and diverse. There was a total ascent and descent of 40,000m, (4x Everest!). Contrary to popular belief, running a coast path around an entire country isn’t a case of running 100’s of miles on beachfront promenades! There are cliffs to clamber up and down again, endless sand dunes, fields and moorland.
