It is easy to understand why this beautiful Northumbrian Coastal Village has recently been rated as the Country's most popular seaside resort with its sweeping beaches, rolling dunes, high rocky cliffs and of course most impressive of castles you are ever likely to see.
This was never going to be about setting fast times. With a challenging course boasting hills galore and dramatic scenery it was easy to understand why runners had travelled from far and wide to be part of the event.
Our own Simon Bekker was amongst the competitors flying the good flag for GYRR and whilst only just on the way back from injury this was not an opportunity to run in such majestic surrounds that he was easily going to let slip by.
