Northumbrian Coastal Run 2016

We had 13 finishers in the Northumbrian Coastal Run yesterday. The 13.5 mile course runs from Beadnall to Alnmouth on beaches and coastal paths. It is one of the UKs top rated events and it did not disappoint again this year. We also had a few travelling in the cheering squad to help the runners along. All stayed over in the area for one or two nights to make it into a very enjoyable weekend.
