What you need to know

In the glorious private setting of the Flete Estate, Holbeton, Devon (PL81LW) we are hosting a Long marathon/Baby Ultra-Marathon distance race, its actually 29.5 miles. It involves 2 estuary crossings at Burgh Island and the Erme Estuary before finishing in the pretty village of Holbeton. This is the 2nd year of the races.

Courses are now designed so you can expect a lovely mix of private footpaths, coastal path, bridle paths, country fields and Woodland. However, the marathon incorporates the South West Coast Path on both sides of the estuary including a beach section at Bigbury-on-Sea and a run across the causeway to the privately owned Burgh Island.

On marked paths to the west of the island, we take you up to the top of the island, you descend and cross the causeway to continue the South West Coast Path further westwards climbing some awesome hills before racing the tide at Wonwell beach, across the estuary and running across Mothecombe beach. You then follow a circular route, continuing on the South West Coast Path for a few miles and on to the village to finish to pick up your well earned medal.
