 The Race -

The race is run entirely on the sandy beach stretching from Borth down to the dunes at Ynyslas before returning to the start. 

Timed to begin at low tide the challenge is to complete the race and keep your feet dry - although on a hot summer's day many runners take the opportunity for a quick dip at the end.

Once again  the race is sponsored by Its A Gift where runners will find the race HQ and registration and where the prize giving will take place shortly after race completion.

The 1 mile Junior race (minimum age 7) starts a few minutes after the main adult 10k, heading out to the half mile marker point before returning to the staring point.

The course is entirely on the beach at low tide (on predominantly hard-packed sand) and goes directly north past the village towards Ynyslas.

Race Etiquette -

  • The Borth Beach 10k starts just before the Junior Mile. Senior runners should take care during the   first 800m of the course.

  • Don't be afraid to smile and say thanks to supporters and marshals as you go along.
