What Happens After I Book?

Some training perhaps ;) We operate a paperless booking system and thus you will not receive anything by post. Participant numbers, electronic timing chips, etc. will all be provided at registration on event day. All necessary content and updates are posted to the relevant event pages, and we will send you a summary email approximately one week before the event. NB due to the frailties of email delivery, and possible last minute changes, we do kindly ask you to look back to the site 24hrs before the event.

The Coastal Trail Series

Britain boasts one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world and here at Endurancelife we're immensely proud of it. The Coastal Trail Series (CTS) is designed to showcase the very best sections of this unique landscape by laying on the biggest, most exciting, and toughest trail running series in the UK!

The CTS team has carefully selected the most iconic sections of our special British coastline and have put together a series that represents a wild and varied cross-section of coastal landscapes and terrain. The Series spans the nine winter months from October until May.

Each stage is set in a different stunning location, designed to showcase the natural and historic highlights of that area of unique coastline. Each inspiring stage has its own character and throws up a unique set of challenges. What they all have in common is an incredible abundance of natural beauty, breathtaking scenery and unlimited potential to inspire.

Something For Everyone
[10K, Half Marathon, Marathon, & Ultra]

At each location there are four course distances to choose from, offering runners of all levels and experience the chance to enjoy the challenges of the coastal trails! Whether you’re 16 or 60, a newcomer or an old-hand, the CTS offers something new and exciting for everyone. Runners can participate in as many or as few of the events in the series as they choose - although for some the 7x challenge is all too irresistible!

Every stage is a competition in its own right, with over 18 medal winners and a great prize pool. The Ultras will come in around 33 miles - perfect for those in training for MDS etc; they are, of course, a massive undertaking in their own right!

A Great Weekend

Each Stage takes you to a fascinating corner of the country, where a fantastic weekend awaits. Each season, hundreds of people use The CTS to experience parts of Britain that they simply didn't know existed! Why not make a weekend of it and bring some friends, or the family? The events themselves have a warm and inclusive atmosphere (we won't have it any other way), and all of the localities have plenty to keep you busy the whole weekend long.

Limited Capacity

We are very privileged as the courses pass through National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB's), Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI's). As such, in order not to put these sensitive landscapes under undue pressure, we work closely with the relevant parties and user groups and limit the number of places to sustainable levels. If you are not able to secure a place this year, we hope that you will look back to join us in a year's time.

The 7X Challenge

This is not a competition, simply a very tough challenge: complete seven CTS events within a calendar series (Oct - May). Any combination of course distances apply. High praise is rightly due to those who take their dedication and commitment to the next tier, and maintain such high levels of fitness over such a long period.

All of those who successfully complete the 7X challenge will be rewarded with a highly coveted 7X brand T-shirt.
