Route
The start and finish are close to the Dalriada Bar.  The race starts on the Promenade and at the Swim Centre the course takes runners onto the beach in an westerly direction towards the Cats and Dogs' Home and returns along the tide line to the Joppa end and then rejoins the Promenade to finish near the start. Clear route maps will be posted at registration.  The route is approximately 4 miles long.  A map and course description will also be posted on the club website at http://www.portobellorunners.co.uk/porty-beach-race

NOTE: ROUTE CHANGE. AT THE ELEVENTH HOUR WE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THE COUNCIL HAS ALSO APPROVED A BEACH VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT ON THE BEACH BY THE SWIM CENTRE OVER THIS WEEKEND INCLUDING WHEN THE BEACH RACE IS DUE TO TAKE PLACE. TO AVOID A CLASH RUNNERS WILL BE ROUTED AROUND THE COMPETITION AREA WHICH WILL RESULT IN A SLIGHT INCREASE IN THE TOTAL DISTANCE OF THE RACE.
