I've just entered this. Did it last year and it is my absolute favourite race of all time. I recommend everyone to run this at least once. Fab views, varying terrain and fantastically well run race.

I agree.Did it in 2006.May enter again.I see it was voted number 1 event in Runnersworld mag for 2007.

I agree too! Great race!

May do it this year again to mark my Thirtieth b'day!

Stoxy-You look far too young to be 30.

I think I'll be giving this one a go.  How quickly do entries normally fill up?  I'm trying to convince some friends to do it.

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!

Any of you from that part of the world? Have just moved away and am missing it v much so have just entered, despite running for a mere 2 months - panic has already set in!

Cally-I'm from Newcastle. My dad was a Northumberland lad. I live in Leeds now but still miss home of course!
I take it this will be your first race then?? Dont panic! You've got till July. Plenty of time to take it steady and gradually up the miles. We will be here for advice and support.

I'm going to send my cheque off later!

I'l be entering again shortly.

I fancy this one as well, i'll just check the dates and make a note for when I get paid next week!!

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

Form has gone off today.Anyone getting the bus service to the start ? Ive paid the £2.50 for the bus.

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.

Slow Sam - there is a campsite near the start - just outside Beadnell. I have stayed there before many years ago as part of my Duke of Edinburgh's Award. It was quite basic from memory but in a nice spot: Beadnell Bay campsite

Stoxy - the Harrogate 10K is on the 27 July as well!

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.
