About Coastal Trail Series - Northumberland
Running here will nourish runners’ souls like nowhere else on earth.
The Northumberland coastline boasts some of the most dramatic coastal scenery in the UK and is best known for its sweeping sandy beaches, rolling dunes, high rocky cliffs and isolated islands. This striking landscape is steeped in history and there are few sights on earth that compare with Bamburgh Castle and its expansive and exposed bayside setting.
A host of conservation sites, including two National Nature Reserves, testify to the great variety of wildlife and habitats found in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once here, runners will feel as far removed from the pressures of modern life as it is possible to be.
To help protect the Northumberland coastal paths applications to the Northumberland Coastal Marathon has been limited to only 500 runners. Applicants are advised to apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
