More details on all three routes below

 

The three routes

Ultra- Kingswear to Shaldon – 8am +

30 Challenging Scenic Multi-Terrain miles all on the South West Coast Path with 6,500 ft of ascent

Starting in Kingswear in South Devon the route starts with just under a mile of flat running along a country lane, but then the challenge really begins as the route heads off-road, 9 miles of very scenic technical coast path all the way to Berry Head, before heading around Brixham Harbour and then back off-road to Goodrington Beach, from here until Torquay Harbour the route is on tarmac, just after you pass the Imperial Hotel in Torquay the route heads mainly onto the trails again as it heads up and down before reaching Babbacombe Beach, where if you are lucky Sammy the Seal maybe about, you then duck under the famous Babbacombe Cliff Railway and head to Petitor Downs, from this point to the finish you are on very scenic 6 miles of hilly off-road trails. Finishing at the picturesque Ness at Shaldon, with views across the River Teign.

The route is multi-terrain with around 75% trails, but it is all on the South West Coast Path, the majority of tarmac is in the flatter middle section from Goodrington Beach to Torquay Harbour.

Half Marathon- Preston Green to Shaldon – 9.30am +

13.1 Challenging Multi-Terrain Miles all on the South West Coast Path with just over 3,000 ft of ascent

Starting at Preston Green nr Paignton, from here until Torquay Harbour the route is on tarmac, however just after you pass the Imperial Hotel in Torquay the route heads mainly onto the trails again as it heads up and down before reaching Babbacombe Beach, where if you are lucky Sammy the Seal maybe about, then you duck under the famous Babbacombe Cliff Railway and head to Petitor Downs, from this point to the finish you are on very scenic 6 miles of hilly off-road trails. Finishing at The Ness at Shaldon.

The route is multi-terrain with around 75% trails but it is all on the South West Coast Path, the majority of tarmac is in the first section from the start to Torquay Harbour.

As the route is totally on the South West Coast Path navigation is as simple as keeping the sea on your right and following the Acorn signposts, however we will be adding extra signage and have marshals where needed

The route is multi-terrain with around 95% trails but it is all on the South West Coast Path.
