Fun Run at Green Carnival at the Coast

On Saturday 18th March, thousands will flock to take part in our Green Carnival Fun Run.  Why not join them at this fabulous annual sportive?

The first event, 'Moyra's Green Run' took place last March on Longsands Beech, Tynemouth and was a huge success!

This year there are 3 events to look forward to:

  • Disability Event (follows 3k route) - 930am
  • 5k Run - 10am
  • 3k Family Fun Run - 1005am

All races will start on Longsands beach, Tynemouth (situated in front of Crusoe's Beach cafe).  The 5k route will turn left off Grand Parade shortly after passing the Grand Hotel to take the road back down to the beach, thereby doing two laps of the beach and Grand Parade before continuing on to the Priory finish line in the same was as the 3k runners.

Choose your event and distance - 3k or 5k.  We encourage everyone, young and old to get fit and active by participating in these events, the key is to enjoy it!  There's no pressure to compete and those who enter are there to have a good time.  You don't have to be a runner and you don't have to be super fit - it's all about taking part!

Your registration includes; a medal, t-shirt and goody bag for each finisher PLUS admission into the Green Carnival at the Coast in Tynemouth Priory and Castle which includes a tented village, entertainment from local choirs and dancers, food concession and a bar, as well as FREE entry into the World Record attempt at the Largest Human Shamrock.  Come along and take part, you'll be guaranteed a great day
