An Unusual Half-Marathon

I’ve just come across an unusual half-marathon that some of you might be interested in doing. It’s across Morecambe Bay, from Flookburgh (Cark Airfield) to Hest Bank, on Sunday 16th August at 1.30 pm. To quote from the flyer: “Run mainly on sands, this unique race crosses the River Kent and yes you will get wet, very wet!”. I know from experience that the Morecambe Bay sands are generally quite firm, and at low tide the river will be about 100 yards wide and no more than knee-deep.

The entry fee is £20, and runners are also asked to raise at least £30 sponsorship (for CancerCare). Further details can be found at: and at :
