Route information
A lovely scenic, out and back route, from Hornsea through to Hull and back along the Trans Pennine Trail. The beginning part of the race along the seafront will be largely fast and flat. The course will then join the Trans Pennine Trail and will turn back on itself after going through Hull.
The longer distances will not traverse this out and back route and will now follow a 6.1 mile lapped course to avoid the busy roads. This Express to Hornsea race will be a great race by the seaside for everyone to close your summer season off well.
What's included
  • Finisher's Medal
  • Seaside themed cakes
  • Chocolate and beer on finishing

It wasn't overly scenic, just a trail run there and back. Atmosphere was great at race HQ and fabulous selection of cakes

This came at a good time of year for marathon training and nice to run somewhere new. Course was off road on the flat hull to hornsea bike path (no seafront section as we'd hoped) Path was narrow in places making it hard for runners to pass (one of whom got grumpy). All in all an enjoyable day with very friendly marshals and fellow runners. Bear in mind that these are not big races so especially at longer distances you might be running alone and need to be self sufficient. Enjoyed the cake at the end. I'm not a fan of the huge medals unfortunately so hoping for more regular sized ones for future events. Fish and chips at the end can't be beaten though!

Overpriced. Checkpoints only have water, and not always enough of that. Marshalls don’t really want to be there, one of them smoked. Fellow runners were super friendly though.

The signage could have been improved, clear on the way there, the turn around & most of the way back but when you came off the trail, the roads all looked the same & were confusing. Needed some more signage!

Poorly organised. Not enough marshals, I ended up going off course and getting lost in the town centre due to the lack of sign posts for direction. Halfway marker was just a small cone and a woman standing there saying turn around. Shocking. Would not participate in this again

The later start for 10k meant running during the hottest part of the day which added to the challenge.
