Avengers Assemble… At Bridlington Beach!
A new event planned for Bridlington in September could provide you with the opportunity to indulge your super-hero fantasties...
Sunday, 4 September will see a brand-new event in Bridlington - the Bridlington Beach 5K and Fun Run. The event will take place entirely on the beach and is restricted to 300 runners.
The event is seen as an exciting new addition to the calendar in the resort, and hopes are high that it will become an annual occasion, arranged initially by the Coastal Services team of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Bridlington Road Runners and the Yorkshire Coast BID.
The Start will be on Bridlington south beach running from the Lifeboat slipway south for 2.5K and back. The 1K fun run is for runners of all ages and a fantastic way to make this a fun family day out, especially with the added excitement of fancy dress (see below!).
The event will be held in conjunction with Comic Con being hosted at Bridlington Spa on the same day. For those who fancy doing the 5K or Fun Run dressed as their favourite comic book hero, there will be a prize for the best dressed, to be awarded by the Comic Con judges.
Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "This new event will be great for Bridlington, and will undoubtedly help the health and wellbeing of the town's residents. People will be able to take part just for fun, or perhaps to raise money for charity, and we will also be offering prizes for the best fancy dress as well, especially as the event will coincide with Bridlington Comic Con.
"I am sure that this will prove hugely popular and will become an annual event in Bridlington."
Take a look at some ideas for costumes here, whether you dress up or not, this looks set to be an eye-catching, exciting and unique event on the running calendar.
