Jewson Barnstaple Marathon and Half Marathon 2020 routes
A very flat and very fast course, the event starts in Rock Park in Barnstaple and heads down the Ladies Mile and through the scenic Taw Vale. The route runs through Barnstaple town and out onto the Tarka Trail - one of Britain's longest continuous traffic-free trails. Athletes will race through the village of Wrafton and on to Vellator, back to the Tarka Trail for Crash Gate One.
Participants race around the Royal Marines Base at Chivenor - a solitary loop around the perimeter with further aid and water stations. After this 2.5mi loop, race through Crash Gate Two and pass back towards the Chivenor roundabout, re-joining the Tarka Trail, across the old bridge to Shapland and Petters. From this point onwards, it's the Tarka Trail the whole way to Fremington, up Fremington Quay Road and follows the main road all the way to Yelland.
Once at Yelland, athletes will head back to Barnstaple via the Tarka Trail, cross the old bridge, run down onto the Strand, and head back to the park to finish, where they will be heralded by cheers from spectators and their bespoke finisher's medal.
Similar to the marathon distance, this is also a fast and flat course perfect for those who are looking to set a new PB. The race starts and finishes in Rock Park, Barnstaple and heads down the Ladies Mile, through Taw Vale and onto the Tarka Trail at mile 1 at the old Shapland and Petters site.
From this point the route follows the beautiful Tarka Trail to Fremington and up Fremington Quay Road. Participants will follow the road from Fremington to Yelland, heading back to Barnstaple via the Tarka Trail and racing back to Rock Park for the finish.
