Front Runner Events announces Half Marathon Trilogy

JCP Swansea Half Marathon

Front Runner Events has announced a special Half Marathon Trilogy that offers runners 10% off when registering for all three of their 2018 events as well as a limited-edition medal upon completion of all three.

The Trilogy comprises the Llanelli Half Marathon on 18th February, the Great Welsh Half Marathon on 15th April and the award-winning JCP Swansea Half Marathon on 24th June.

The discounted price and the promise of a specially-made medal are a fantastic incentive for runners to sign up to run the Trilogy and experience some of Wales’ very best running events. Not only can they look forward to three flat, fast and friendly races, the timing of the race two months apart makes them perfect motivation for training and maintaining goals.

Llanelli Half Marathon 2017The Llanelli Half Marathon is the ideal race to blow away the winter cobwebs and get the season off to an exhilarating start, its flat and fast course taking runners along the magnificent Millennium Coastal Path and offering breathtaking views of the West Wales coastline. The 2017 race saw the course record smashed and hundreds of PBs achieved as runners crossed the finish line at Parc y Scarlets, home of the legendary Scarlets rugby team.

The Great Welsh Half Marathon is part of the Great Welsh Marathon and is an exclusive event on the running calendar, with a total of just 500 places. It offers runners another opportunity to enjoy the spectacular coastal scenery around Llanelli, starting and finishing at Festival Fields. The limited-edition Trilogy medal will be awarded to runners who complete either the Great Welsh Half Marathon or the Great Welsh Marathon in addition to the Llanelli Half Marathon and the JCP Swansea Half Marathon.

The JCP Swansea Half Marathon was voted the UK’s best half marathon (≥ 5,000) at the Running Awards 2017 and has become a firm favourite among the running community, both for its superb atmosphere and stunning course that covers a magnificent six-mile stretch along Swansea Bay. It will be celebrating its fifth anniversary in 2018 and is a glorious finale to celebrate the completion of the Trilogy.

David Martin-Jewell, Director of Front Runners Events, commented: “We are excited to announce our Half Marathon Trilogy, which enables us to offer our loyal supporters a reduced price as well as the recognition they deserve for completion of all three events. We have created a bespoke medal that will reflect the superb achievement of running all three half marathons and hope that it will encourage many athletes to experience these thrilling events in some of the Wales’ finest scenery. Registration is open and now is the perfect time to start training for the first event in Llanelli in February!
