Race 4 | 18K @ Pole to Pole (Coldingham)

New to 2022 – Pole to Pole: Coastal Trail Run – our brand new trail running event that takes place on the beautiful Berwickshire coast. This trail run includes a special timed stage with a nautical twist! 


13 March 2022

13 March 2022 @ 10am

Join us at Coldingham Beach to take on this picturesque 11 mile Trail Run. 

The added twist in this trail is a timed special stage between the two Admiralty Distance Poles that stand high on the St Abb’s Head headland.

These two sets of poles sit on the cliffs to the west of St Abb’s Head and they are exactly a nautical mile apart. Normally used by ships to measure their performance, we will be using them to accurately measure yours! Tackle this special timed stage at top speed, it’s only a (nautical) mile after all. Oh, did we mention the poles are on either side of a ravine and include 120 meters of climb…

Pole to Pole Trail Run

The route comprises of off-road trail running using a range of paths, trails, minor roads and farmland. The start and finish will be on Coldingham Beach and depending on tide times may involve a small stretch of running on sand.

Follow the trail through Coldingham Village to join farmland trails leading you through a small woodland and out on to the stunning clifftop paths. Get your sprint on for the nautical mile and then ease off the pace as you head around the lighthouse at St Abbs Head and back along 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.
