Operation Overlord (75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings)

Official online event entry for Operation Overlord (75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings), Saturday, 08 June 2019

Join us as we remember one of the most important moments of WW2. Our route is along the beautiful Northumberland coastline and will includes a section along the beach - but don't worry, this sand in this section is hard packed and is more like running on pavement! The Northumberland coastline has various reminders of WW2 with anti-tank blocks and pillboxes still visible, so it is an ideal for our event.

Each lap is 6.55 miles, just over 10km in length and as well as the beach it also includes the Druridge Bay Country Park. We will have an inflated 5km option (about 5.5km) for anyone wishing to run a shorter distance.

We will start at 10:00am, after Parkrun so if you are a Parkrun tourist then you can tick another venue off the list. You choose the distance you want to run in the 7hr time limit. We will also include a 5km option into the route for anyone who wants to do the shorter distance. Complete at least the inflated 5km distance and you will receive our commemerative 100mm medal and a goody bag (vegan goody bags available on request).

The course is suitable for all running experience. Please note if there is adverse weather, the route will be subject to change.

There is plenty of activities for the family at this venue with a childrens' playground, nature walks, grass play area and of course the beach. Druridge Bay is just over 20 miles north of Newcastle, within a 90 minute drive of Carlisle and 2hrs from York and Edinburgh.
