Run Llangollen Canal 10K

“Welcome to the most beautiful 10K run in the UK.  The off road route is undulating yet quick but most of all it is incredibly stunning. Running along the famous Llangollen Canal this race is truly one of a kind, It is a beautiful course with stunning scenery, perfect for all abilities.

I had been injured in the weeks coming into the Llangollen 10k for 2022. In the February during Ironman training I’d had a plantar issue I’d been keeping at bay, but then suffered a sprain at a club run and it felt like I had a wooden foot so I rested and focused on what I know with Biomechanics to get back fit for the Llangollen trail run which had been postponed since 2020.

Llangollen Running Club was out in force to support the event, it starts at Llangollen Sports Club which is where they meet for their weekly evening runs. It’s a loop around the grassy track, down to the canal and past the wharf towards Trevor. Once at Canastle Bridge you head up to the farm and through the fields. It’s pretty lumpy to run which makes it challenging, and I had lost a lot of run fitness coming into the race which meant a lot of walking! You come back out at the canal and return to the club for a final victory loop!


It wasn’t pretty, but I did it. It was a really good race and a great atmosphere, however I was admittedly a bit gutted with my performance. I’d been so much fitter just a few months earlier, and in fairness it took an extra month after the race before my foot felt right again! 
But it was a lovely race, showcasing a small piece of Llangollen’s beauty! It was well organised and the organisers even helped get my 4 year olds phone back to me after he lost it on the field.
