The run starts in Shanklin and finishes at Yaverland and is along the beach below the high-water mark at low tide.
There are 43 groynes to negotiate most of which can be run through gaps of which some will be marshalled. About 13 groynes will need to be run around through shallow water of about ankle depth.
Two concrete groynes are slightly longer and they will be run around in about 60 cms of water for a short distance of about 50 metres.
The majority of the course is dry however footwear is recommended.
