3 coastal marathons and 3 beautiful venues, the Tidal Triple Series brings runners 3 of Barrow's coastal pathways which are traffic free and with a variety of terrain to cater for all running styles. Each course is a lapped route and aid stations are well stocked to support the runners. The events are timed events and each race has a 6 hour cut-off (marathon) and 3 hour cut-off (half marathon).
The Tidal Triple series combines these 3 coastal routes to make a 3 day back to back running bonanza in Barrow-In-Furness. The 3 events consist of marathon, half marathon, 10km and 5km distances which involve completing a number of lapped courses.
