The Wrexham Elite Marathon & Half Marathon was devised in spring 2020 when it became clear that some of the big city marathons and half marathons might not be staged due to COVID-19.
We have a new and officially measured fast course (no: 20/127) based on the small loop of our renowned Village Bakery Wrexham Half Marathon and entries are strictly limited. It is on flat, well maintained tarmac roads through an industrial and predominantly rural area.
This race has been planned in preparation for a return to COVID-19 safe road running and will go ahead only with final and full approval of UKA, Welsh Athletics and the local authority.
The marathon will start and finish outside the old ‘Club House’ on Oak Road Wrexham Industrial Estate Wrexham LL13 9RG with runners set off in waves depending upon their predicted finish times.
The half marathon will start outside the old ‘Club House’ on Oak Road Wrexham Industrial Estate Wrexham LL13 9RG with runners set off in waves depending upon their predicted finish times. The half marathon will finish in Isycoed village and runners will be signposted to the parking areas from there.
The race is fully supported with a road closure, the most up to date integrated chip-timing, free to download photographs, on course nutrition and free designated parking.
Race entry is £33 or £31 for affiliated runners for the marathon and £26 or £24 for the half marathon (plus online registration fee).
If your Power of Ten does not support your entry we reserve the right to cancel your place.
Please note that this race is separate from our Village Bakery Wrexham Half Marathon which takes place on Sunday 14th February 2021.
This 7 or 3.5 lap race is open to male athletes capable of running 2:40 or quicker for a marathon and female athletes capable of running a sub 3:00 hour marathon or the elite half marathon equivalent (1:15 men and 1:30 women).
