Overview

Join in at Coldingham Beach to take on this picturesque trail run. The added twist in the 19km (approx) trail run is a timed special stage between the two Admiralty Distance Poles that stand high on the St Abb's Head headland.

These two sets of poles sit on the cliffs to the west of St Abb's Head and they are exactly a nautical mile apart. Normally used by ships to measure their performance, the race will be using them to accurately measure yours! Tackle this special timed stage at top speed, it’s only a (nautical) mile after all. Oh, the poles are on either side of a ravine and include 120 meters of climb…

The 5K takes you out towards the pretty village of St Abbs before heading back towards the beach via a cliff-top path. The course then winds its way up to the finish line in the main village of Coldingham.

This event is part of Fox Trail Race 3.
