Saturday 30th December-ALNWICK TRI SOCIAL COASTAL. This year Alnwick Tri are hosting their annual run from Beadnell to Alnmouth on the Saturday 30th December.
The run is free to Alnwick Tri and Alnwick Harriers members but will cost £5 for non members to enter. The generous prize for running is a hearty cup of soup when you reach Alnmouth. Jelly Babies may even be on offer at scenic spots along the way.
Tides are not perfect on the day so be prepared for wet feet and some running along the paths as well as beaches. The route is approximately 14 miles.
Coach leaves Alnmouth at 9am sharp. Parking is difficult in Alnmouth so get there early as you may need to park at the beach car park. Registration is at 8.30am in the Hindmarsh Hall, Alnmouth. The run starts at 10am from the beach at Beadnell and finishes on the beach at Alnmouth. If you’d like to take part please email Steve CARRAGHER at email@example.com.
