The Woolacombe 10K Beach Run is organised by the Compass Rotary Club of Ilfracombe. Last year's event, was very popular and received much praise from the competitors.
The course follows the beach up to Putsborough, then a short up-hill section takes runners to the track heading towards Marine Drive. From there a path through the dunes takes the runners back to the beach, for the return leg to the finish.
The race is officially marshalled and timed - with much thought given to the safety of the runners. There are prizes / trophies for overall winners as well as category winners. All finishers receive a Beach Run medal. Money raised from the event will be donated to the British Heart Foundation (- who will also provide a pre-run 'warm-up' session.
We are currently designing our website, where entrants will asked to register (£15). Entry on the day is possible - but costs £17. Follow the event on Facebook. For full information and entry form - please visit www.woolacombebeachrun.co.uk
