South Coast Run routes

The run is a simple out and back course along the esplanade at Seaford which is flat and fast.

The vast majority of the course is on good level tarmac.

A very small part of the course near to the finish line is gravel and then grass.

Please take care on the run course as there may be pedestrians.

When you have completed the required lap(s) filter into the finish alley on Martello Field and through to the finish line (signed and clearly visible).

There is a feed station on the run course at approximately every 1.5 miles and at the finish line serving High5 sports drink and water.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Very nice scenery, nice atmosphere, easy access. Very friendly and Professional staff. Small crowd , but very enthusiastic.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    A great run, I decided to cut down to the 10km as training had changed. I think for 5km and 10km it’s a perfect course. I don’t know if doing four Laps would get a bit repetitive but dead flat so all good!

    Only complaint.... not enough toilets ! Only 7 available. Told there were toilets on the promenade but they were closed anyway 🤷‍♂️
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    First entered organised run, will be back next year really enjoyed it, may even do the half marathon.
  • Did the 5K Fun Run in 2018

    This was my first ever race! And boy, I don't think the weather got the message, but if anything it made my race what it was, a sub 40" 5K in sideways rain!!! loved it
