More info below provided by Ian (thanks Ian):-
Meeting and parking
Meet on the grass across the road from the Woodvale pub 6.45pm to set off 7.00pm. The sailing club has racing on Wednesday evenings so you may have to go a little way along the sea front or up the hill (Woodvale Road) to park.
The course
I’ll be there but not running – instead I’ll walk the first/last part of the route. The course is out-and-back, along the beach (it’s high tide) then along the coastal path to Thorness Bay, where you do a loop. The usual route is 4.6 miles, but smaller and larger loops are possible at Thorness Bay. I haven’t walked it very recently, but with the drought followed by recent rain, I expect it to be mostly OK underfoot but some rutted bits and a couple of muddy patches. There are some places where the path is very close to the cliff edge, though only a small drop. The stony stretch along the beach near the start and finish can be avoided by taking the road, but at the expense of a steep hill. If using the beach, get onto the seawall at the earliest opportunity – it was repaired a couple of years ago, and some steps we used in the past are gone. To access the cliff path turn left after crossing the Luck (stream), and the entrance is very soon on the right. The most likely place to get lost on the usual route is halfway round the loop – at a junction at the top of an uphill stony track by a house turn left, then LEFT AGAIN onto a footpath, immediately after the house. If lost, head for the coast and pick up the coastal path. 
Afterwards If anyone would like tea/coffee and biscuits/cake you are welcome to make your way up the hill to {Ian's house}.
