Clovelly to Bude (Marathon)
Hartland Quay to Bude (16 Mile)
Morwenstow to Bude (7.5 Mile)
The longest day will be the start of the TSUNAMI 24, our longest and toughest race to date with 75 miles, 5,270m of ascent and 24 hours max. TSUNAMI 24 starts on Friday night, the longest day of the year, and finishes at Castle Bude on Saturday.
On Saturday, we’ve procured the iconic Clovelly Harbour for the start of the marathon – 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 10 miles of serious fun, the 16 miler includes the toughest, most vertiginous section from Hartland Quay onwards, with the 7.5 mile race giving a short sharp introduction to the coastal hills, starting from the village of Morwenstow.
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.
The routes are all fully marked using yellow, pink or orange flags, red and white/yellow tape and yellow/white directional signs. After all intersections/junctions, the route will be confirmed so look for tape and/or directional arrows. South West Coast Path acorn symbols will also be your guide through your race. You should not have to look too far ahead to see the marked route.
The full route will be checked a few hours before the start of the races and route maps are online at: www.puretrail.uk/tsunami

The TSUNAMI series of trail races is due to hit the North Devon and Cornish coastline this summer.
We have chosen the most rugged, wild and remote section of the North Devon and Cornish coastline for some extreme fun along the clifftops and cliff trails. Its a tidal wave of endurance trail running.
