Event summary

Axe Valley Runners welcome you to the 30th Grizzly which is held under Association of Running Clubs rules with permit numbers ARC 17/065 (Grizzly & Cub) and 17/066 (Junior Race & Fun Run). This is the Grizzly’s Pearl Anniversary - over the previous 29 years, there have been approximately 80,000 completed runs, with over £335,000 of race proceeds being donated to numerous different charities! The Grizzly has over 3,500' ascent in its 20 miles; don't trust the elevation profile on Map My Run since it misses nearly two thirds of the climb. There are two sections of beach, totaling well over a mile; 2 energy-sapping bogs, where runners are often up to their waists in water and mud; and the infamous “Stairway to Heaven”, a steep path up the side of a cliff (beware if you suffer from vertigo). Some of the descents are steep and often very slippery, so please take care. It will take roughly your road marathon time, perhaps longer if conditions are grim.

As always this was a great race, superbly organised with fantastic, cheerful marshalls to look after and encourage you all the way round. The course is really tough, and there are sections that aren't runnable so it's not really a pure "running race" as such, but it's highly recommended for those who are up for a challenge and enjoy running in tough off-road conditions and beautiful scenery.… read more

Everything about the Grizzly is top. But most of all the atmosphere. The whole town, and surrounding area gets involved. This isn't a personal best event but you will have the best time doing it. It's got everything Hillarious pre race brief, fancy dress, tasty cakes, mud, hills, drummers, beer, great support but above all top marshals who are extremely encouraging dispite less favourable conditions. … read more

Fantastic event with great support all the way around the course. Great scenery all the way around with marshals on every corner carrying sweets. Couldn't fault the organisers who see the village of Seaton turn into a running frenzy. Definitely one for the diary next year! … read more

Challenging but fun course with memorable moments like the bog, the stairway to heaven, pebble beaches and even wading through a stream! Spectators and marshalls were amazing all round the course and I loved every second of it - would 100% recommend it but make sure you book accommodation and food in advance if you are travelling from further afield. An iconic race!
