VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help out at a running event.

Organisers of the inaugural Beaumaris Run Fest, on the morning of Sunday, September 9, expect up to 300 people to tackle the 10K or half-marathon routes.

There will also be a one-mile run for children and families.

Runners will set off from the Beaumaris Green to the sound of a cannon being fired from the seafront.

They will follow a route taking in the stunning views of the mountains of Snowdonia and the Menai Strait.

The half-marathon will include challenging climbs and follow a hilly route to Penmon Point, offering views of the Penmon lighthouse and Puffin Island.

All the races will finish at Beaumaris Castle.

All 10k and half route runners will be presented with a ‘Coast to Castle’ T-shirt and a medal.

The Run Fest is not-for-profit event and the majority of the money raised will go towards the running of the Canolfan Hamdden Beaumaris and Ysgol Gynradd Beaumaris, with some hopefully also going to help local causes.

Run Fest organisers need 40 plus marshals, together with another 10-12 people to operate the three drinks stations on the routes.

The marshals will be roughly distributed as follows: 18 in the Beaumaris area, four in Llanfaes, and 19 in the Llangoed/Caim/Penmon areas.

Marshals will be needed from approximately 9.15am-12.30pm (actual times will vary depending on where a particular marshal is) and drink station teams from 10am-12.30pm approximately.

Start Times: are one-mile fun run 9.30am; 10k and half-marathon, 10am.

“If anyone can give the event three hours on the morning of Sunday, September 9, that would be really appreciated. I am sure people will enjoy the event,” said Dr Steve MacVicar.

Prospective volunteers are asked to email Dr Steve MacVicar, who is responsible for coordinating the marshals and drink stations, at stevemacvicar@doctors.org.uk
