Route information
Full Round
Distance: 64 miles Elevation: 2,901 metres Time: 24 hours Aid Stations: 9
The full route highlights the beauty of nature, as runners will navigate past wild garlic-lined river paths, climb past Dalwood vineyard on Danes Hill, pass through ancient woodland full of wild flowers and coated in bluebells, and traverses the striking Hartridge ridge, high above the village of Luppitt, and the home of Otter Brewery.
Runners will travel through lush vegetation, purple orchids, and woodland before reaching Goat Island. There are also some impressive climbs along the route, with runners tackling two of East Devon's best climbs, both the Iron Age hill forts.
The route then meets the sea at both the impressive Lyme Regis's historic cobb and at Axmouth harbour, but also reaches the heights of the Blackdown Hills, complete with views reaching far over Dartmoor.
A final section of Offwell woods spits you out back where you started all those hours and miles before where pizza, beer, cake and your East Devon Round medal are all yours.
