2013 Inaugural Abersoch Half Marathon ~ 2hours 2mins 47secs

After barely any running this year since the Abersoch 10km in May, I decided to give the inaugural Abersoch Half Marathon a go.

The route takes in much of the Abersoch 10km route including the infamous 'Tochyn Brutal' hill climb and the last mile over the groynes for a beach finish. Midway the route heads out towards Hells Mouth with views of Bardesy Island before heading back to Sarnbach and Abersoch... Stunning!

I managed to get a few runs in in the preceding weeks, the longest being an 8mile run but was really pleased with the outcome on the day and almost breaking the 2 hour mark (but for the heavy sand on the beach finish)

A great run over a breathtakingly beautiful course... Definitely one for the future!
