Race Description

A half marathon with a difference, the CancerCare Cross Bay Challenge is the only known race in the world to cross a tidal bay and consistently one of the UK’s highest rated races.

Crossing sand, sea and county borders, this flat but challenging race is an adventure to remember… expect to get wet, very wet!

Here’s what past runners have said about the Cross Bay Challenge:

“Fantastic day out and a wonderful race. Will definitely do this one again and will be recommending it to all of my friends too.”

“A unique and challenging way to cross the bay and a must do for any runner”

“Crossing the Bay on foot was something I’ve always intended to do. Running it as a half marathon has to be the best way to do it. Well done CancerCare!”
