On Saturday 5th October, whilst most of us will be having a lie-in, Steven Evans, Martin Perch, Martin Howie, Mike Jones and Zach will be setting off on a gruelling 55 mile run (yes, run!) that sees them past three famous Welsh castles!

The team will be heading out from Conwy Castle, then making their way over to Caernarfon Castle and completing their epic challenge at Harlech Castle. 

In addition, as if 55 miles in one day was not enough, the guys have decided to run up Ffordd Pen Llech - THE WORLDS STEEPEST STREET - which leads to Harlech Castle at the end of their awesome challenge.

This will be a real test of guts and determination as the majority of the route will see them running off-roading through the rugged North Wales countryside!

Once the challenge has been completed the team will attend a charity evening at Tŷ Mawr, Llanbedr to celebrate their achievement.

The guys have already raised a fantastic £500 of their £1,000 target. You can help them reach their target and support their great cause by donating to their fundraising page at - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/charity3castlesultra

Ty Gobaith Area Fundraiser, Eluned Yaxley said: "From us all here at Hope House & Ty Gobaith, we're wishing a huge GOOD LUCK to the three castles ultra marathon team! We cannot thank them enough for taking on this incredible challenge to help seriously ill local children and their families. Their support will make a real difference and we simply couldn't be here for the families who need us without amazing supporters like Steve, Martin, Martin, Mike and Zach. Good luck and stay safe chaps!"

Thanks also to Zeal for supporting the endeavour.
