Coastal run full in record time

Have your say

All of the entries for the 2014 edition of the popular Northumberland Coastal Run were snapped up today in record time.

The Alnwick Harriers-hosted event, proudly sponsored once again by Eclipse Translations, will take place on Sunday, July 20.

The race will start on the beach at Beadnell at 1.30pm and will finish at Alnmouth after 14 miles of Northumberland coastline. Please note the new start time. This is due to high tides earlier in the day, meaning that the usual morning start time would be rather wet and dangerous.

There were 1,170 places up for grabs, with entries opening at 00.01 hours this morning, but they were all gone by around 2.30pm.
