The Great Straight Raft Run

The Great Straight Raft Run


The Great Strait Raft Run is held annually on the majestic waters of the Menai Strait. The spectacular backdrop of Snowdonia’s mountains and the Isle of Anglesey’s natural beauty contribute to the uniqueness of this fun and challenging day of rafting and raising money for good causes.

Starting from the old slate port of Felinheli rafts proceed past historic Plas Newydd and on towards Porthaethwy (Menai Bridge). En route passing beneath the iconically spectacular engineering and structural feats that link Anglesey to the mainland - the Britannia and Menai bridges, built by Robert Stephenson and Thomas Telford - and navigating the notorious and occasionally demanding Swellies.

The Raft Run was resurrected twelve years ago and is once again a fixture in the calendar - a day of endeavour and fun in aid of charity and local good causes.
