Peterborough – Bay of Martyrs – steps and beaches edition

Peterborough – Bay of Martyrs – steps and beaches edition

Distance: 8 km
Elevation gained: 135m

A spectacular mix of trail, beach and steps to get the heart pumping. Check tide and ocean swell conditions before you go if you intend running the beaches. Look out for and keep your distance from endangered hooded plovers when on Bay of Martyrs beach. Staying on clifftop trail will reduce this run to around 6km. Enjoy!
