Route information
The longest and toughest of all the races, TSUNAMI 24 is 75 miles and 5,270m of ascent, in 24 hours max. It starts on Friday night, the longest day of the year, and finishes at Castle Bude on the Saturday.
On Saturday, the iconic Clovelly Harbour will play host to the marathon's starting line. Runners will head uphill on the cobblestones through the village to reach the Coast Path, to finish on the lawns of Castle Bude, taking in almost 2,000m of ascent along the route.
The Ultra adds another 11 miles of serious fun, while the 16 mile race features the toughest, most vertiginous section from Hartland Quay onwards.
These races are undoubtedly some of the toughest trail running challenges in the South West. Due to the nature of the terrain, wild and isolated (no towns or villages along the route), they will also prove to be the most rewarding.

  • Finisher's Medal
  • Fully marked and marshalled route
  • Well-stocked checkpoints
  • First aid
  • TSUNAMI 24, Ultra & Marathon finishers receive 5, 3 & 2 ITRA points respectively.

I can't speak highly enough of the whole event. Mark and Steve were fantastic communicators prior to the race and the race itself showcased their skills still further - the stunning course, really brilliant volunteers (thank you!!!) and the midsummer timing made for a memorable run. The concept and variety of race distances were brilliant and the vibe that the organisers and volunteers created will live on! The weather was about as perfect as it gets and it looks like that is becoming the tradition for this highly recommended event. If you are looking for a challenging course and some of the most beautiful scenery I have come across in the UK then you MUST consider this race.

This was by far the most difficult race ever. I absolutely loved it. Stunning views, great atmosphere between All runners, medics were great and the food stations were a welcome break with a great choice. Loved it so much, I'm back to do the marathon next year. If you never do another race then do this one. Train with the respect this course deserves. You get a great tan as well as dirty legs!!

A great event, really well organised with great logistics! The course was incredibly picturesque but challenging with an ‘undulating’ second half.

The first year of the Tsunami 24 and i think it was a great success!This was my first Ultra over 40 miles and first through the night too.I absolutely loved it from start to finish, we were treated to perfect weather conditions and the course was well marked, with incredible aid stations along the way. The volunteers who were out there all night were amazing and made it that much easier too.You get so much variation of terrain through the whole course from woodland to narrow coastal paths, fields and steep hillside climbs it has it all! To go from daylight to darkness and back and over the many many ups and downs, Tsunami 24 is my favourite ultra to date!See you next year!

Is there a certain time you have to finish within? I’ve never ran a marathon before but have been doing 10kms in lockdown below 50 mins. Just a little concerned I may not be fast enough? Thanks :)
