Race 4 | 5K @ Pole to Pole (Coldingham)

Introducing our inaugural Pole to Pole 5k race.


13 March 2022

13 March 2022 @ 10am

Join us at Coldingham Beach to take on this picturesque 5k Trail Run.

Wind your way up to the main village of Coldingham before heading out towards the pretty village of St Abbs, heading back to Coldingham bay via a cliff top path.

Run with your dog!

You can enter all our 5K races in 2022 with your dog. All dogs must be on a canicross harness or collar and lead and you must clean up after them. You will set off 10 minutes after the main runners. This will be a non-competitive event meaning you will not be timed.


Pole to Pole 5km Run

This run is a mixture of quiet roads, farm tracks and coastal paths taking you from Coldingham to St Abbs and then back along the stunning cliff top paths back to Coldingham Bay.

Venue & Facilities

Coldingham Beach Cafe
​Coldingham Sands
TD14 5PA

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. There is a small Car Park adjacent to the beach and beach users walk down the short but fairly steep access road to the beach.



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. 


What should I wear?

It is winter so bring something warm to wear for before and after the race. For the race wear run clothing suitable for the weather on the day and make sure you are in your trail shoes, on-road trainers are not advised.

Do I need full waterproofs?

We are not going up any massive hills on these events so you do not need to carry full hill kit. You may want to bring a waterproof jacket and extra layer just in case the weather gets chilly.

Can I run with my dog? 

We have limited entries for our 5k series for those wishing to run with a dog. Make sure you keep your dog on a harness or short lead whilst running and be sure to clean up after it if it makes a mess.

What is the exact route?

Full route information will be published on our website around 2 weeks prior to the event. Some routes require land owner permission and cannot be recced prior to the event, we therefore do not publish the route in advance of the events.

Can I defer?

Unfortunately we are unable to offer deferrals, for information on refund options please see Terms & Conditions – Durty Events.

Can I have a refund?

For information on refund options please see Terms & Conditions – Durty Events.

Can I Change distance?

If the event you have entered has more than 1 distance option available then it is possible to transfer to another distance, this must be done at least 2 weeks in advance of the event and may be subject to a small admin fee. Please see Terms & Conditions – Durty Events for more information.
