With the choice of Cross Bay Challenge, a half marathon (the only known race in the world to cross a tidal bay and consistently one of the UK's highest rated races!) or a family-friendly 6 mile walk that finishes in the same place as the runners in time to cheer them over the finish line, there’s something for everyone.

Cross Bay Challenge

Under expert guidance, runners tackle both the time and the tide on the notorious sands of Morecambe Bay. Expect to get wet, very wet!

A few quotes from previous runners:
“A unique event with excellent organisation with the potential to become one of the UK’s premier events”

“The best half marathon I have run… this event has the potential to be massive”

“Brilliantly organised, amazing scenery and great atmosphere. If you’re going to do one half marathon in your life, do this one!".


Cross Bay Walk

The walk is suitable for children and dogs are welcome. Support vehicles will be on hand should any walker feel too tired or, for any reason, unable to complete the walk.

Both events are a truly unique way to experience the stunning scenery of Morecambe Bay and the South Lakes. Historically the quickest route from Cumbria to Lancashire at low tide, the bay crossing dates back to the 13th century when monks from the local abbeys served as guides to travellers. Whilst the monks have now been replaced by highly-experienced guides equipped with a host of navigation and safety equipment, the experience of being out on the sands remains as breathtakingly beautiful as ever.
