Unfortunately we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel this event.

Welcome to the entry pages for The Brand New Pole to Pole Coastal Trail Run

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

Join us at Coldingham Beach to take on this picturesque 11 mile trail run with a special timed stage between the two Admiralty Distance Poles that stand high on the St Abb’s headland.

These two sets of poles sit on the cliffs to the west of St Abb’s Head, 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 includes 120 meters of climb! 

Enjoy the stunning coastline views before returning to the beach to refuel with a well earned award winning Jarvis Pickle pie.

Will you lead from the front or sit back and save some energy to be crowned King or Queen of the Poles? 

A Greener Pole To Pole!

  1. Feed station cups are our biggest source of waste so we’re stopping using them. There will be no cups at feed stations. Please bring your own reusable vessel or we'll have some available in registration for a small fee. You will need to carry this with you and use it on the course if you wish to use feed stations.
  2. T-shirts: some of you love them and some of you don’t.  If you’re the latter, we’ll now give you the option to donate the cost of your event tee to charity. You can make this selection when you sign up via Entry Central by choosing No T-Shirt. Your entry cost will remain the same and we’ll donate the equivalent value to The John Muir Trust.

Brought to you by the enthusiasm and expertise of Durty Events and possibly the Best Pie Maker in the Borders Jarvis Pickle, Pole to Pole is guaranteed to be a great day at the beach!
