Northumberland Coastal Run

22/07/2012

On Sunday 22nd John Green travelled across the country to take part in the Northumberland Coastal Run organised by Alnwick Harriers...

Since the inaugural run in 1979 with only 12 competitors, the race now boasts a field of 1,100 and has become so popular that all available places are snapped up within 48 hours of the entries opening in January.

The run starts on the sand at Beadnell and follows a route along coastal paths finishing with one and a half miles along the beach at Alnmouth.

The weather was dry but runners were faced with a headwind which picked up towards the end of the race, and combined with running on sand made for a tough finish. John was pleased with his time of 1:44:42 and said that he felt this was not so much a race but a run, albeit tough, and that it was easy to see why it sells out so quickly with runners coming back year after year.

Local athletes from Morpeth Harriers won both men's and ladies races in respective times of 1:16 and 1:28.
