the place of the setting sun, with only the vast ocean between them and the unknown. The Pilgrims Trail links ancient churches dedicated to the saints of the 6th century, with the race starting from Bangor Cathedral which is built on a low-lying and inconspicuous site, possibly so as not to attract the attention of Vikings from the sea. The trail entwines with the North Wales coastal path, providing competitors with jaw-dropping views from inland to the coast as they race toward the finish. Race finish is at the picturesque former fishing village Aberdaron at the western tip of the Llyn Peninsula.

This event is part of The Pilgrims Ultras and Trail Marathon.
