The Dragonrun1027 Route

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.

Arry and Day 1 supporters at the very beginning! (Cardiff Bay)

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.

    awesome challenge. Good luck. I bet your hammering the hill training ready for this. The prestatyn – Llandegla stretch is the hardest bit of the whole offas dyke, Moel famau is also the highest point on offas dyke at 554m. To be fair that is a properly nice stretch though when its sunny.

      Thank you! I’m ready to take on the hills! Thank you for the heads up on the Prestaty – Llandegla stretch, that’s one part of it that I have no idea about so it’ll be a surprise :o/! I can’t wait now! Thank you for your support! :o)

    Arry, amazing.
    This is something I fantasise about for my retirement. Can you publish a gpx of your route?
    Roads are boring. Flat is boring.
