Here are the distances available for North Devon AONB Marathon
The North Devon Marathon is a demanding yet beautiful course. With Woolacombe Bay as the centre point, runners follow a figure-of-eight around stunning coastal scenery, inland trails and will take in the scenery of some of North Devon's most beautiful beaches and coastal villages. The steep inclines and variety of terrain is enough to test any experienced runner. There is 1,300ft of ascent for the half marathon and 3,300ft for the full marathon. Many runners have described it as the toughest run they have ever done. In fact, Merrell UK described is at the 6th toughest out of 10 in the UK! Half marathon runners will stop after the first loop, with full marathon runners going on to complete the second loop in the figure-of-eight. You can download route maps below. Please note that part of the course is on private land so please do not train on these areas or you will be trespassing.
Water stations are located approximately every two miles and offer water, bananas and jelly babies. Some also have water and sponges for a cool down. Prepared drinks (must be labelled clearly before you arrive) can be left in the designated buckets for miles 13 and 18.

All runners must report to the registration marquee at the Event Village by 9.30 to sign in and collect their chip, number and confirm they have arrived. Registration opens from 8.00am. You can also collect your pre-purchased event t-shirt. Remember, if you don't buy it when you register, we can't get a t-shirt for you. Unfortunately, we can not accept entries on the day. No switches if another runner can't run. Absolutely no dogs on the course with runners.
The race operates from 10.00-17.30. Full Marathon participants that have not passed the midway point (race village at 13.1miles by 13.15pm will be asked to stop as they will be unlikely to complete the race in the time allowed and it is therefore for their own safety. Marshals will be stood down from 17.30 and withdrawn from the route.
After the run, all runners are given their medal and are then welcome to go into the massage tent. A number of therapists from North Devon Hospice will be on hand to offer massages. There is a minimum donation of £5.00. All therapists have generously donated their time free of charge on the day to help ease the aches and pains and to help with fundraising for the hospice. We are also situated above a Blue Flag beach - so feel free to take a dip!
