Cross Bay Challenge

Date & Location

Flookburgh, Cumbria

Organiser’s Description

The only known race in the World to cross a tidal bay. Historically the quickest route from Cumbria to Lancashire at low tide, the crossing dates back to the 13th century when monks served as guides to travellers. Monks have been replaced by highly experienced guides, but the sands remains as breathtakingly beautiful as ever, and this flat but challenging race is an adventure to remember. Also Cross Bay Walk, and new for 2015, an exhilarating event has been added to the Challenge line up - Fatbiking - the bicycle equivalent of a monster truck! Expect to get wet, very wet!
