Cross Bay Challenge Half Marathon

Flookburgh, Cumbria

Organiser's Description

This is 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. Whilst the monks have now been replaced by highly experienced guides, equipped with a host of navigation and safety equipment, the experience of being out on the sands remains as breathtakingly beautiful as ever.
