From the organizer

Organizer's website

The more windswept and, some might say, interesting younger sibling of the Jurassic Coast Challenge. The route starts near Padstow and finishes at Lands End. Complete up to 78.6 miles (3 marathons) over 3 days by walking, running or crawling, putting your mental and physical prowess against some of the wildest coastlines in Britain.

Dare to complete 1, 2 or 3 days. Every Atlantic Coast Challenge starter receives an event T-shirt and every finisher receives a classic challenge medal and Cornish Pasty. Monday morning proof to your work colleagues or family that you completed the toughest 3-day Votwo challenge!

Course Details

The course features wild and rugged terrain. Steep climbs and descents that test your concentration as well as your strength. Each day is unique with its own individual challenges and famous landmarks to add to the experience. The course follows the South West Coast path which is marked by the Acorn sign. It's a very obvious well-worn route. You will be issued with course maps and the emphasis is on self-navigation. In most cases, it's as easy as keeping the sea on your right and the land on your left.
