The 2018 edition will be a point to point swim starting in the harbour of Charlestown and finishing on the beach in the harbour of Polkerris.

The route will take you across St Austell Bay from east to west passing all the Carlyon Bay beaches plus Spit and Par before finishing at Polkerris.

Hopefully, you'll be rewarded with a clear flat calm turquoise sea and lots of ocean wildlife en route. And as always a massive swim-five from the Mad Hatter crew at the finish will await every competitor from 1st to last. What's not to like?

Each competitor will receive a coloured swim hat and a special commemorative medal. Male and female prizes for overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd and AG winners.

Registration will take place at Polkerris and we will transport you to the start unless you have your own transport with family/friends. You will only be able to take that which you need on the transport so please plan on what you need to take and what you will leave in the baggage store at Polkerris.

The first Dart Swim Run brings swim running on a epic scale to the South West. You will follow the regions most iconic river by land and water. The Swim Run Marathon consists of five swim sections and five run sections and a half marathon consisting of three swim sections and three run sections, both finishing in Dartington Estate.

The LONG course starts at Blackpool Sands and the SHORT course starts at Blackness Marine. The whole course can be completed in pairs or as a solo or part of a relay team.

Heart of Dartness 3k swim:
For those who arent interested in running, due to popular request, weve decided to add a 3k swim option in to the mix.

The arrangements are exactly the same as for the half marathon, except youll finish at Ashprington Point. You will be responsible for arranging your own transport back to your car, unless you are camping at Ashprington Point. Camping is provided if you get in early.

Sea Sells Sea Shells 750m swim (Blackpool Sands):
After speaking to the organisers of a charity swim in aid of the Special Care Baby Unit at Torbay Hospital, also at Blackpool Sands, we wanted to help in their fundraising mission. Every entry will contribute 2 towards the unit.

As Blackpool Sands is already going to be buzzing with swimmers and runners as part of the Dar Swim Run, we thought wed add to the atmosphere by adding a sea swim only event, 750m swim in this lovely setting. You can park at the beach for a small fee and drive away afterwards or linger for a coffee/breakfast at the Venus Cafe.

Our Sprint Distance Triathlon at Blackpool Sands in the South Hams returns for a 4th year. You start with a swim across the stunning bay at Blackpool Sands. Then it's onto the bike for a tough climb followed by a fast blast along Slapton Sands, Devon's flattest stretch of road. The final 5km run is 4 spectator friendly laps around Blackpool Sands mainly on grass and with one tough little climb per lap. We also have a Supersprint with a shorter 400m swim, the same stunning bike and a 2 lap 2.5km run. Camping the night before for a small additional charge.

Starting and finishing in the Moorland village of Peter Tavy and nestled below the wild Tors of West of Dartmoor. The Dartmoor 3 in ONE offers 3 races of 3 distances, all in ONE day. 22.25 miles in total.

All races start and finish from Peter Tavy Village Hall with a mass start for each race. You have to finish the first to be on the start line for the second. How much time you have to recover between races is down to the individual. Do you go all out and rest, or pace it out and go for negative splits? Its up to you

Start times are generous to a degree but the cumulative effect of 3 race starts in 5 hours is certain to have an effect on performance. Its a long race broken into 3 faster, shorter events. In itself, this is a new concept and we think its going to be a real test of endurance and tenacity to be the pureTrail Dartmoor 3 in ONE overall winner.

Cornwalls biggest running event, the Eden Marathon and Half Marathon returns on 15 October 2017, with a multi-terrain route through spectacular countryside.

A firm fixture in the running calendar, the Eden Project Marathon and Half Marathon offers hilly multi-terrain courses around the famous site, following a challenging route through areas of spectacular mining heritage and beautiful countryside landscapes.

We created the course through Cornwall's dramatic Clay Country not only to offer a unique sporting experience for runners nationwide, but to showcase the unique region on our doorstep. The idea came from a conversation with the local St Austell Running Club, whose commitment, enthusiasm and passion have been invaluable in putting on the event.

The Marathon is just one of the many ways Eden aims to act as a catalyst for economic growth in the local region. If we could build this place, in a former clay pit, surely together we can all take on even bigger challenges
