The purpose of this note is to demonstrate that it is possible to use the proposed formulae in Blenkinsopp et al.  to estimate runup and rundown based on long-term variation of wave conditions by using the Myrhaug and Fouques  joint distribution of significant wave height and Iribarren number for a sea state. Examples of application are given for typical field conditions including a procedure of determining the 100-years return period values for the runup and rundown and the corresponding values of significant wave height and Iribarren number.
