I agree too! Great race!
May do it this year again to mark my Thirtieth b'day!
Aah Mick, you are too kind!It's a great race Barry. Hard work more than made up for by the scenery. You've got plenty of time at the moment. But don't leave it too late obviously! It says the closing date is the 1st July and no entries on the day. I think I will combine this years with a trip up North (and free accomodation) to see the rellys. Perhaps I can even talk the OH into it. Yes I think I will more than likely be there again this year!
Is there any campsites nearby?? May as well combine it with a family camping weekend!!!
But yep, i'm in!
See you there Sam! Just had a look and Bishop Wilton Half (another great race) is the day before. Sh!t. Oh well. If I have to choose between the two it'll be this one again. Last year I did this on the Sunday, Bishop Wilton the following saturday, and Pudsey 10k the day after!! Really hope Pudsey is the week before this as I don't want to miss it. Fingers crossed
I'm hoping OH can transport me to the start - we're staying just near Craster. Think the race will fill up quicker than usual due to it winning RW race of the year 2007. When I rang to book hotel they said they already had booking of 18 for people doing the Coastal Run.
A message from Alnwick Harriers: Thanks to everyone who rated our event so highly in the RW poll. Everyone at the club is thrilled to have been ranked best race in Britain. Hope to see you all in July.

Anne- See you in July !
JR-Wrong forum but useful info! I'll make a note of the date!
Jovi Runner - Thanks for that thats great, i'll get booked in, i've not done this race before, so dont know the area etc, do I need to pay the £2.50 to get the bus to the start??
Anne-Thanks for popping on.Ive just sent my entry form off to you.
Sam-I would advise getting the bus if you cannot get a lift to the start.There's no transport back to the start from the finish.You can leave your bags on the bus and collect it at the finish.The bus leaves from outside a local school, just 5 mins walk from the finish.There's car parking within the school but get there early.I think they charge a pound to park all day.When I did this run in 06 there was about 3 buses going to the start.
Brilliant Mick, so i'm better off staying in Alnmouth rather than Beadnell? I'll have a look round over the weekend then and get something sorted.
Sam - yes, if you don't have transport to the start and need to get the bus, staying in Alnmouth is probably best. We are staying in Craster area which is about halfway between the start and finish.
Anne - don't suppose you can confirm that you've recived my applicaiton - Wendy Marks, HArrogate Harriers.
This race is on my list of ones to enter this weekend! Not done it before but sounds great.
Stoxy - is your 30th actually on 20 July, or that week? I quite liked the idea of doing a race on my birthday this year but just noticed the other day it's a bloomin' leap year so birthday is actually on a Monday, huh!
I just entered, woo! Really pleased to have something to train for in the summer apart from anything else.
Swittle you can enter through RW, that's what I've just done... wow, what a testament to say in 18 years it's still your favourite race, now I really can't wait!!!
This is the second run I've had to miss for another bloody wedding this year.
I was really looking forward to it. I bet they end up divorced as well, so itwill have been for nothing!
I know where you're coming from Steve, wish my mates would check the racing calander before they decide to get hitched...!
Wendy - confirmed. I'm hoping to start processing the entries on Easter weekend.
Swittle - if you don't want to enter online you can get an entry form from our club website . Go to the Coastal Run page and you'll find the form at the bottom. Alnwick Harriers website
