Snowdonia Marathon in North Wales
Here is one for the records with extraordinary views. It’s also quite a challenge and one that you will look back on with fond memories if you can do it. Try running or jogging- but not walking- up a hill for the first four miles.

There are many runners who share their experiences with this marathon saying it’s one of the best they have ever done and that it’s one that everyone should do. You will feel great afterwards. There is lots of running involved going straight uphill and straight downhill, so it’s a great way to boost your stamina up and to get those muscles toned for your future marathons.
