Pole To Pole: Coastal Trail Run

March 7, 2021 9:00 am

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 poles sit on the cliffs to the west of St Abb’s and are exactly a nautical mile apart, used to by ships to help calibrate equipment and speed. Between these two poles we’ll have a special timed stage, which happen to sit on either side of a ravine! This special timed stage measures just over 2KM with 120 metres of climb.

Enjoy the stunning coastline views before your return to the beach for 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? Secure your entry today!


We’re Having A Greener Pole to Pole: Coastal Trail Run in 2021!

  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 the feed station.
  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.

An 18km (500m climb) trail run starting and finishing at Coldingham Beach with special timed staged between the Poles on St Abbs head which measures 2.3km with 120m climb.
