24th February 2024 @ 10am

Setting off from Harvest Moon Holidays, this race has been the series highlight for many previous runners and may be one of Scotland’s toughest half marathons.

This half route provides spectacular coastal views, mature woodland trail, farm paths and an energy sapping beach run on the sands of Tyninghame Beach. Don’t even try to keep your feet dry, you will almost certainly be taking a paddle as you cross the Peffer Burn river crossing. The 5km route provides spectacular coastal views, mature woodland trail, farm paths and a blast along the sands of Tyninghame Beach.

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.

5km Run

Get ready to be introduced to all the elements on this exposed course. Over the last few years this event has seen the best of East Coast weather. Expect snow, sleet, wind, rain, some winter sun or all of the above as you plough your way through fields and forest onto the coastal paths and down on to the sand at Tyinghame Beach.

The Harvest Moon Half Marathon

This one is not for the faint hearted. Over the last few years this event has seen the best (and worst) of the East Coast weather. Expect rain, wind, sleet, snow and possibly a little winter sun as you take in the farm paths, coastal views, woodland trails and that dreaded run along the sandy beach.

Pull on your multi-terrain trainers and don’t even try to keep them clean and dry. They will get a good wash when you hit the Peffer Burn river crossing!

Please note some of this course is on private land
