A HOSPICE based in Llandudno is urging people to sign up to the Run Wales Four Castles Half Marathon Series.

In return, St David's Hospice is asking supporters to raise funds to help fund core end of life services in North West Wales.

The Four Castle Series is a series of four 13.1 miles runs organised by Run Wales in Caernarfon, Snowdonia, Bangor and Conwy.

The event in previous years was called the 'Three Castle Series', however in 2020 a fourth race was added, completing the series.

The four races will take place:

  • Snowdonia, August 22 2021 (£100 minimum sponsorship)
  • Caernarfon, September 19 2021 (£100 minimum sponsorship)
  • Bangor, October 31 2021 (£100 minimum sponsorship)
  • Conwy, November 21 2021 (£125 minimum sponsorship)
  • *£300 minimum sponsorship for all four races

James Wilde, St David’s Hospice’s Conwy Area fundraiser, said: "We’re looking for people to run one, two, three or four races in the Four Castles Series.’’

“It could be your first half marathon, or you could be an experienced runner. St David’s Hospice will support you every step of the way with your sponsorship which will make a massive difference to both patients and their families cared for by St David’s Hospice.”

Those interested in taking part could run one, two, three or all four races. The money will contribute towards continuing to provide end-of-life care free of charge to the people of Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey.

Community fundraising is vital to St David’s Hospice’s income of the £5 million annual running costs of St David’s Hospice, with just nine per cent of that figure coming from the Welsh Government and the health board.

Anyone who would like to register to run, can eail james.wilde@stdavidshospice.org.uk or telephone 01492 873674.
