Chariots of Fire Beach Race

The race starts and finishes on West Sands, at the town end with the “race village/hamlet” adjacent to the Sea Shell beach cafe. The route itself is pretty much flat, out and back and run entirely on sand and in surf and runners start and finish to the strains of Vangelis, just as the runners do in the film that inspires the race – Chariots of Fire. Marshals will be on hand to direct anybody unsure as to the exact location. Runners will run out along the beach for 2.5km before turning and sprinting for the finish (a piper will be at the turn.)
