Course information

Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Our 5k event offers a single lap route through the Open Air Theatre and along the promenade. The terrain is all path and road and is suitable for all levels of fitness and experience.

This event can accomodate wheelchair users but please be mindful that although this course is all path and road and predominantly flat, there is a 50m steep hill section leading from the promenade to the Open Air Theatre which will require assistance.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Meeting point

The start is situated in the Scarborough Sealife Centre Car park.

Although there is no designated event car park, there is plenty of pay and display car parking close by to the Sealife Centre; off Burniston road near the Open Air Theatre/ Miniature Railway Station/ Peasholm Park.

Due to Scalby Mills Road and Royal Albert Drive being closed for the event, the Sealife Centre car park and on road car parking along the promenade will not be available, however blue badge holders only will be able to access this.
