Road Run from Treborth to Llanberis

Thanks to GC from South Gloucestershire for this road-running route from the Treborth Statue to the Llanberis Statue. GC writes:

This is the route the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run took back in Summer 2019 when the North Wales Peace Statues were inaugurated. It’s just over 10 miles, tarmac all the way, mostly quiet lanes and a bit of shared-use path at each end to avoid running on the A roads. I did this on a midwinter Saturday and there was hardly any traffic – I took high-viz kit and a flashing light just in case but the few drivers that did pass me were respectful so no problem there. Might be a different story in the Summer!

I had a great meditation at the Treborth statue with Amit, the “caretaker” who looks after both statues. After that it was a peaceful run through the lanes with the views of Snowdonia getting better and better as the miles pass. At first you just head towards Caernarfon following signs for the Greenwood Country Park. Then once you have passed the Park entrance you go straight ahead at every junction until you’re crossing the river on the old stone bridge at  Brynrefail and running down the side of the lake.

That final section is on a cycleway and then comes the “boardwalk” that takes you to into Parc Padarn, bringing  you out right at the feet of the Peace Statue. A wonderful run. It’s all on Map My Run at:
