Course Details
Half Marathon details:
Enter this unique half marathon event which is an out and back along the Pendine Sands. Starting from Barnacles Cafe, first to make up the distance you run down the beach 0.6 miles before turning back to the starting location and then running down the beach again to Ginst point, then looping back to Pendine for the race finish.

10k & 5k details:
An out and back along the beach, turning at a point where a race marshall holds a flag.
You may think that running on the sand will be extremely difficult, but at Pendine the sands are home to the land speed record attempts made famous by the Blue Bird car. This means that generally the sand underfoot is quite firm and absolutely perfect for running on, especially for barefoot running.

Ultra Marathon details:
Consists of two laps of our pre-determined course, actual distance of just over 32 miles. Commencing with a six mile run along Pendine Sands to Ginst Point, continuing along the coast to Broadwas, then returning back through Tremoilet Farm and finally back to the start / finish point at Pendine Sands, where you complete the route again.
Raceday Logistics
Registration will be open on the day in the carpark from 8:00 by Barnacles Cafe. Look out for the Orange G4 Land Rover! Registration will look to close by 8:40 to allow for a race brief and photos so please don't be late.
Travel
Parking is limited to some controlled areas on the beach and at existing carparks generally in Pendine. We strongly encourage you to carshare as carparking may be at a premium.
