Taking place the day before the Official London Marathon. This alternative marathon is for those who couldnt get a ballot place and still want to achieve a 26.2 mile guided distance event.

Taking the official route in reverse order, this customized event puts you in groups of ability with experienced pacers and gives you the full marathon experience.

This also means that once complete, the day of the official race you can show off your new Reverse Marathon Medal and enjoy the crowds and party official London Marathon atmosphere!

This includes everything a normal Marathon package features (race preparation, warm up, professional medical teams, frequent water stops, goody bags, free race t-shirt, official photography, and a party afterward!).

This is NOT the marathon to get a PB or sub 4 hour time, more a leisurely fun pace that everyone can enjoy. We put you into groups of ability, walkers, first timers, quick runners and provide EVERYTHING you need to help you reach your goal.

Plus! You receive free training guides and access to our monthly build-up races to come and meet/train/ socialize with our other runners! Take part for charity, for achievement or simply for fun!

New for 2018, we have added a beast of a route. This is the toughest Inov-8 X Series route on our calendar, with over 2300m of elevation, it's 300m higher than the Inov-8 Snowdonia X Series event! That should give you some idea of the challenge that awaits you here in Devon.

We are sending you along part of The South West Coast Path which is England's longest waymarked long-distance footpath and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles (1,014 km), running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, to Poole Harbour in Dorset. Since it rises and falls with every river mouth, it is also one of the more challenging trails. The total height climbed has been calculated to be 114,931 ft (35,031 m), almost four times the height of Mount Everest

The route starts at Caffyns Farm and heads along the coast path at Lynton, you will be met with towering cliffs and stunning sea views across to South Wales. Soak up the stunning sounds of seabirds nesting on the cliffs. As you venture along the coast you will enter the valley of rocks, a superb section of coast path well know for its herds of feral goats. This section is among the oldest Devonian rocks in north Devon and is highly fossil ferrous.

As you continue on your way you will become lost in the splendour. We take you to Foreland Point, a rocky headland which is the most northerly point along the Devon and Exmoor coastline.

The route then sweeps back inland towards some special forested sections that make you feel like you're back in the heart of Devon. One stand out area is Watersmeet, we know you will be enchanted by this section of the route. There are many other hidden gems on the Exmoor X Series event, we dont want to spoil it too much for you, so come and join us! The outdoors awaits...

With gentle rolling tracks along the Derwent water, you will eventually be hit head-on with some tough gritty climbs onto the outer edges of the Derwent valley.

This will lead you to the final climb onto the last ridge before you descend back to the finish for a well-earned cuppa!!!!

After 14 years we are making some changes to the format of the classic South Downs Marathon Day. The routes of marathon and half marathon themselves remain unchanged but we are taking out the marathon relay and introducing a trail 10km in Queen Elizabeth Country Park.

Regrettably, the lack of safe parking at two of the relay changeovers make us believe the relay is unsafe as most cars arrive at the changeover points in the same time frame and it has become a hazard and probably an accident waiting to happen. To make up for the loss of this popular element of the marathon we have brought in a 10km route entirely within Queen Elizabeth Country Park that will cover the first 2.5 miles of the half marathon route, divert on the Staunton Way and rejoin the return section of both the marathon and half marathon on the South Downs Way at the Buriton car park entrance.
