South West Coast Path Trail Running Challenge routes

The new 12K takes you out of East Soar and over the rolling fields towards Bolberry, with views as far as the eye you head up to Bolberry Down and follow the incredible coastal path back towards Bolt Head at Salcombe. After leaving the coast path you will head back to up East Soar Farm to fisish, with views all around you as you make your way up the final hill.

If you take on the the 22K, you will be heading through Bolberry on to South Hursh and around the gorgeous village of Hope Cove before joining the the coast path and enjoying the path all the way to Overbecks House, where you will go around the National Trust property before heading back up to the finish.

    Great run, fantastic varied course - very well organised. Found the dogs very frustrating on the trail track.
