Races summary
Here's what races are available for Devon Coast Challenge
Route information
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.

You will be sent the course maps prior to the event for you to familiarise yourself with 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.
