The Vale Of Glamorgan Coastal Ultra challenge is to complete a 32-mile linear route along the entire coast of the Vale of Glamorgan. It is suitable for both runners and fast walkers. There is also a short course option of 18.5 miles taking in the second half of the route.
the full course race starts at 08:00 on Saturday morning from Penarth Pier.
From here the route follows the Wales Coastal Path, almost entirely on a trail. It hugs the clifftop passing numerously hidden and rugged bays all the way to the splendid beachside resort of Ogmore-by-sea. The route itself passes 19 beaches, with the final 14 miles traveling along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast with its dramatic cliffs, amazing rock formations, romantic coves and rolling countryside.
The 18.5-mile race starts at 10.30 at Porthkerry Park, Barry.
