Race Alert! Cross Bay Challenge 12/08/2012

An important heads up about this years Cross Bay Challenge.

Clare, Danny and Catherine enjoying a cheeky paddle.

As you may know we have now chosen the Cross Bay Challenge as our summer social event - which means a  weekend (or a day trip if you're a lightweight) of beer, tents and running through sand and sea water.

The race is HUGELY popular and will sell out some time in advance of race day, so get your entries in now to avoid disappointment.

We will be organising camping and a mini-bus nearer the time.

More information is available from their website.

Here is some blurb if you're unfamiliar with the race.

Cross Bay Challenge has been voted 4th by Runners World Readers, for the top trail races. 

Cross Bay Challenge is a truly unique way to experience the stunning scenery of Morecambe Bay and the South Lakes. Historically the quickest route from Cumbria to Lancashire at low tide, the bay crossing dates back to the 13th century when monks from the local abbeys served as guides to travellers. Whilst the monks have now been replaced by highly-experienced guides equipped with a host of navigation and safety equipment, the experience of being out on the sands remains as breathtakingly beautiful as ever.

With the choice of a half marathon (the only known race in the world to cross a tidal bay and consistently one of the UK's highest rated races!) or a family-friendly 6 mile walk that finishes in the same place as the runners in time to cheer them over the finish line, there’s something for everyone.
