The 40th anniversary of Alnwick Harriers’ flagship Northumberland Coastal Run will be held on Sunday, July 21, 2019 – but the registration process will be different this time around.
The renowned event takes place over a multi-terrain route, stretching for approximately 14 miles. It starts at 10.30am from Beadnell Harbour and follows the stunning Northumberland coastline down to Alnmouth beach.
Registration for the 2019 race will take a slightly different format from previous years as it will be over two days. The first day will be Thursday, January 17, for all UKA-registered athletes and club members.
Alnwick Harriers get an early chance to enter and need to register before it opens to everyone else, using the code they have been emailed by Tracey Sample.
The second day will be Friday, January 18, for UKA-registered athletes and non-affiliated runners. You can enter via www.resultsbase.net and registration opens at 6pm on both days.
Costs for this race are £26 for affiliated runners and £28 for non-affiliated.
Log on in the 15 minutes before opening and you will be assigned a random place in the queue for entry when it opens. If you sign on after 6pm, you will be placed at the back of this queue. The following website gives you details of the process https://resultsbase.net/page/queue
Please note that this race sells out quickly, so it is recommended to follow the log in queueing process.

The first ever Beadnell to Alnmouth Race was held 1979, there were only 12 competitors. In the beginning competitors had to choose their route starting in the sandy bay next to Beadnell Harbour and then heading south running to Alnmouth (approximately 14 miles). The winner of the first race was Archie Jenkins who runs for Morpeth Harriers. The winning time was 1 hour 22:30.
In the first two to three years many changes were made to the route as runners found the short cuts and quickest routes. Apart from one or two sensitive areas the course is unmarked and competitors are responsible for choosing their own route. The course is however, now well established as it makes its way from Beadnell to Alnmouth using public footpaths and roadways. The course which most competitors choose to run is approximately 14 miles long (depending on whether the tide is in or out) and makes its way as follows:
Start at Beadnell Bay and head South via Newton Links, Low Newton By The Sea, Dunstan Golf Course, Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster Village, The Heughs, Cullernose Point, Howick (Sea Houses Farm), Sugar Sands, Boulmer, Foxton Beach, and finishes on the beach at Alnmouth.
At its height in 1992, 1,085 competitors finished the race. The course record for the race is held by: Male: Ieuan Ellis (Elswick Harriers), 1993 1h:10m:30sec and Female: T Calder, (Edinburgh AC) 1h:22m:42sec.
