MORE than 2,500 runners descended on the town of Conwy for a very wet and windy Conwy Half Marathon on Sunday.

Among the participants were nine runners from Denbigh Harriers who braved the elements on a course which set off from Conwy, along Deganwy and into Llandudno’s West shore before taking on the ascent around the Great Orme.

Then they faced the descent into strong heads winds and lashing rain before returning along the outbound route back to Conwy.

Despite the weather conditions crowds gathered in the street along the route to cheer on the runners which lifted spirits and kept everyone motivated.
