Newquay Bay Swim Run 2018

After a successful 1st year event in 2016, we have decided to make the 2017 event bigger and better and accessible to a wider audience.  The event will continue to take place in the heart of Newquay and in the height of the summer.  The event will start and finish on Towan Beach and incorporates all 4 of the bay beach (Towan, Great western, Tolcarne & Lusty).  The event will take place on the evening of Saturday 5th August


You start with a 400m 'M' shape swim which will take you out through the surf to a buoy and back where you will exit the water, run around a flag on the beach and re-enter the water for the 2nd part of the swim.  You will then proceed onto the run up the steps to the killacourt where you will then proceed down the tram tracks to the barrowfields.  From here you will drop down towards Porth, passing Lusty Glaze Beach.  The run will take you along Porth Beach to the Mermaid Inn where you will then proceed along the pavement climbing up out of Porth to Porth Four turns roundabout.  You will then turn right heading back into town, once on the barrowfields you will run down the Tolcarne Beach access road and back along the beach to Towan to finish.  If you are completing the Long course, you will re-enter the water for a 600m 'M' Swim and then back up the steps to the killacourt following Run lap 1 route until you reach the barrowfields where you will immediately descend down onto Tolcarne Beach via the access road and back to finish on Towan Beach.
