Stretching 2 miles between Portstewart and the River Bann, the Strand was voted one of the UK's best Blue Flag beaches in 2016. It is owned and managed by the National Trust and is also a filming location for Game of Thrones (Dorne). With its fantastic coastal views, golden sand and impressive dunes, it is a brilliant venue for the ninth Waggy Races event.
The race will start at low tide, which means lots of beach to work with and the BIG START will be at the entrance to the beach! The course is a 'there and back' so you will race down the beach and sling shot round the Waggy Races roundabout at the pier, before sprinting the home leg, high-fiving your opponents as you pass, while dipping your feet/paws in the Atlantic Ocean.

It will not be possible to enter as soon as we reach capacity.
