The Vale Coastal Races are two challenges 32 or 18 miles along the coast of the Vale of Glamorgan. Almost entirely on trail, they hug the clifftops passing numerous hidden and rugged bays all the way to the splendid beachside resort of Ogmore-by-sea. The full route passes 19 beaches, with the final 14 miles travelling along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast with its dramatic cliffs, amazing rock formations, romantic coves and rolling countryside.
The full course race starts on Saturday morning from Penarth Pier. The short course option of 18.5 miles takes in the second half of the route.
It is suitable for both runners and fast walkers.
