Druridge Bay on the Northumberland Coast makes for a stunning setting for Wild Deer Events' January Beach Trail Runs. 2024 will see the event take place for the fourth time, with runners consistently impressed with both the views and the organisation.
Scheduled for 28 January, the weather could throw up anything. Sun, wind, rain, snow - who knows what you'll get, but what we do know is that runners will enjoy running on paths, trails and the beach itself in a what is a great test for all levels of runners. Race organisers commented: "With fabulous views and a flat course this event is our most popular trail run in the North-East. You can choose between the half marathon or a 10K which will start 15 minutes apart in 2024."
Druridge Bay Country Park, situated on the Northumberland Coastline between Amble and Cresswell, is a popular and family friendly park with a large freshwater lake, woodland, grassland and meadows as well as three miles of beautiful beaches and sand dunes, making it the perfect location to host these Beach-Trail Runs.
The flat 10K and half marathon routes makes the event suitable for all running abilities and January makes it a reachable target for anyone just starting out - indeed it is the perfect early New Year goal. Both of the routes have mixed terrain including paths, trails and the beach itself, and have been designed so runners can take in the breathtaking scenery along the way.
Commenting on Facebook, Michelle Thomson certainly agreed: "This is a fabulous run and blows away all of those Christmas calories! Can’t wait to run this again!"
