Devon Coast Challenge routes

Featuring wild and rugged terrain, this route takes runners up and down steep climbs and descents that test your mind as well as your body. 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.

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.

Day 1: Hartland Quay – Appledore

Day 2: Crow Point – Combe Martin

Day 3: Combe Martin – Porlock Bay


There are checkpoints approximately every 10k along the route, fully-stocked with a variety of food and drinks.
