Course Details

Exeter’s Great West Run takes an exciting 13.1 miles route through the heart of Exeter. This half marathon has it all; a journey through the city centre, followed by pretty country lanes and stunning views across Exeter and a fantastic stadium finish.

CUT OFF POINT: Runners must reach the 4 mile point within 1hr 10mins of the race starting to be able to do the full 13.1 mile route. Any participant after this time will be redirected right along Cowley Bridge Road to follow the remainder of the race route as a pedestrian using footpaths. We will have to enforce this cut off time due to us having to adhere to a strict road closure reopening schedule.

DRINK STATION 1 - New North Road (by Imperial Pub)
DRINK STATION 2 - Stoke Road (by Pennsylvania Road on retun)
DRINK STATION 3 & CLIFF ENERGY BLOKS - Cowley Bridge Road (by Steiner Academy on retun)
DRINK STATION 4 - Prince of Wales Road (by Devon and Exeter Squash Club)
DRINK STATION 5 - Pinhoe Road (by St Marks Church on return)
