Event summary

A 1.2 mile race round the Elizabethan Walls of Berwick-upon-Tweed to beat the Curfew Bell

Your organiser

Tweed Striders is a fully inclusive, supportive and sociable running club and, as such, welcomes runners of all abilities. We cater for all running aims - whether that is running for enjoyment, running to get fit or running to prepare for a particular race etc. This is very important to us and part of our club ethos. Our training is structured and progressive and includes speedwork (both short and long) together with hills and continuous runs. All sessions are differentiated so as to accommodate the needs, aims and abilities of all runners from the fast to the "improvers", not forgetting those in between. We meet every Thursday at 7 pm at the sports centre. Some members arrange to meet to run at times without us. And, from time to time, we organise social events for members!

Route description
Route description

The course has been officially measured by UK Athletics at 1.2861 miles (Certificate No 17/168). Runners start on the historic Elizabethan walls just above the Barracks, The Parade, Berwick-upon-Tweed, then loop around the town walls to finish back at the starting point. The aim of the race is to beat the time it takes the Curfew Bell to toll - 13 minutes. The Curfew Fun Run kicks off proceedings at 7.30 pm. This is "fun for all the family" and aimed specifically at young children who wish to run either on their own or with their parents (please note that all children under 8 must run with an adult who must also enter the race), families and adult fun runners. Entry for the Curfew Fun Run is either online (closing date Sunday 1 July) or on the night from 6 pm outside the Barracks; however, due to high demand, entry on the night is likely to be very limited. Entry costs £3 for children, £6 for adults. There is a race limit of 175 runners. RunBritain Race Licence No : 2019-36135 The traditional Curfew Run follows at 8 pm. This is for runners aged 13 years and over on the day. Entry is online only and costs £6 (closing date Sunday 7 July) – there will be absolutely no entry on the night for this race. There is a race limit of 150 runners. RunBritain Race Licence No : 2019-36135 Numbers for online entries will be available to collect on the night from the Registration Desk outside the Barracks from 6 pm onwards.
