In March 2023 we started and finished in the traditional seaside resort of Skegness visiting Ingoldmells, Chapel St Leonards, Sutton on Sea and Mablethorpe along the way!!
We had some challenging weather for our first year, with every season happening on the day!
So a huge well done to the hundreds of runners who took on the challenge, we've had amazing feedback and you can read a snapshot of 2023's feedback & find lots of photos here.
For 2024 we're taking you from Skegness to Sutton on Sea and back, and are keeping the total distance at 26.2 :) from start to finish!
The Ultra Marathon
35 miles of even more seaside adventure taking you all the way to Mablethorpe from Skegness and back!
We're keeping it small .... we loved our 2023 adventure with our 350 athletes and we're keeping it capped for 2024, we felt it was the perfect atmosphere for our seaside adventure!
Skegness Pier, the historic jewel of Lincolnshire's coast, is proud to sponsor the 2024 Great British Seaside Marathon and Ultra Marathon.
An event embodying the spirit of community, perseverance, and health. Supporting fantastic charities that are close to our hearts, the RNLI, LIVES, and Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.
We wish every athlete good luck and we will be cheering you along the way!
We’ll also invite you to pop along and see us over the event weekend, and read on to see what we’ve got going on.
PS: The 2024 start line is right next to the pier!
We've got some amazing charity partners we're working with on the event.
Hopefully you might feel a little bit inspired to help support the amazing work they do :)
