The BRG Coastal Challenge is just that... a challenge... for walkers, runners and cyclists to complete a 17½ mile coastal course along one of the most challenging and beautiful routes you could walk, run or cycle. It starts in Fraserburgh at the beach, one of the nicest in the North of Scotland, continues along the beautiful Buchan coastline through the villages of Sandhaven and Rosehearty, and ends over 17 miles away at the harbour at Gardenstown.
Taking place annually in August, it attracts challengers from all over and of all abilities. It is not a race. It is about setting your goal to complete the course and doing so. Of course, some challengers also have a bit of a competitive streak and set their goal to get to the end first!
Walkers leave Fraserburgh beach at 10am, runners at 12 noon and cyclists at 1pm. For runners there is a relay option for teams of up to 4 with designated changeover points at 5 miles, 10 miles and 14 miles.
