Join us at Coldingham Beach to take on this picturesque Trail Run.

This is truly a multi terrain event with 17.5km of farm tracks, undulating cliff top paths, woodland trails, sandy beaches and even a little bit of tarmac.   The route takes you out to the pretty village of St Abbs before climbing up to the sweeping clifftops with spectacular views out to sea before heading back inland via farm tracks and woodland paths which sweep you back to the beautiful Coldingham Bay. 

The 5k takes you out towards the pretty village of St Abbs before heading back towards the beach via a cliff top path. The course then winds its way up to the finish line in the main village of Coldingham.

NEW for 2023/24: In a change to the previous format series prizes for this years events will be based on your best three placings.  So enter the full series or the 5k series, take part in 3 events or more and you will gather points based on your placings.  Meaning if you miss an event (or two) in the series you will still be eligible for prizes.

Venue & Facilities

The Leisure Park has Caravan and Camping pods for hire so why not make a weekend of it. View their website here – Scoutscroft | Holiday Park near Eyemouth | Verdant Leisure

The beach itself is about 1 kilometre long and 200 metres wide. It faces east so is a good place to catch the early morning sun. The clean sands are backed by plenty of grassy areas and the area itself has a relaxed, rural feel to it.


There is an unclassified road from Coldingham Village to Coldingham Bay. The event parking will be at the Priors Walk Car Park which is a short walk from the start line at Scoutscroft Leisure Park.


By Public transport – A regular bus service from Berwick-upon-Tweed (where there is a railway station) and passing through Eyemouth stops at both Coldingham village and St Abbs village.
