Organiser's Description


The event is a low tide beach run along the beautiful shoreline of Bournemouth Beach heading out towards Sandbanks Beach. You start and finish on the west side of the pier. Both 5km and 10km distances are available to enter. The groynes will slow you down which is all part of the fun.

Doggy friends are welcome to run with their humans but please make sure they are wearing suitable harnesses and leads.

Why not enter as a team of 4 as well and receive a discount on the price of entry. All entries receive a finishers medal and a t-shirt!

You will be allocated an arrival and start time, these will be staggered throughout the morning. Groups will start with individuals being 2m apart.

Start times will be from 8:30am. Great fun event to end the year on!

The run itself was great; although very challenging running on sand, it was a lot of fun. We ran out in trainers but took them off on the way back to run in the sea barefoot (much easier). There were amazing marshalls along the way too - very enthusiastic and encouraging! My criticism would be the organisation. I had to email the event organisers a few days before the event to request more information and ask how we got our race numbers/start time etc. They also mentioned chip timing but no chips were given (I think someone was manually timing based on our number) and the results table is very confusing with all the 5k times mixed in with the 10k. We initially registered as a group of 4 too but were recorded as individuals. There was a photographer on the day as well but no indication of where we might be able to find photos (nothing on their FB page or website so far other than one group shot). All in all, a good run if you want something fun but challenging that you can take your time with rather than a "race".
