7th August - Cross Bay challenge half marathon - Some striders have already signed up for this, why not join us as we cross sea, sand and counties for the 11th Annual Cross Bay Challenge!

The run is a half marathon across the shifting sands of Morecambe Bay. This year the race will be returning to the original point to point challenge that will take you on an adventure right across Morecambe Bay.

You will leave the shore at Hest Bank running towards Ulverston, crossing from Lancashire to Cumbria before arriving at the Flookburgh foreshore.

Due to the unique terrain of the Bay we cannot guarantee the exact distance. However we will, as usual, endeavour to get as close to the 13.1 miles as we possibly can! The final route will be set as soon as the tide departs the shore on the day of the challenge. Our experienced Bay Guides will guide you across the Bay following a safe route but obviously allowing some adventures on the way. In other words we want you to get wet... very wet!

A bus has been booked which will drop us off at the start and collect us at the finish and then go somewhere for food and drink and then return home.
