North Upton Caravan Park Bantham Beach

Challenging -

*please note registration for this event is now closed!*

Run or walk this clifftop marathon with beautful sea views, starting at Torcross and finishing at Bantham. It is self-timing and non-competitive, although some race for their own attainment. There is a half marathon option available.

Coaches are provided to transport people from the car park near the finish to the start. Checkpoints are provided, providing both water and snacks.

People can decide half way (Salcombe -14 miles) whether to continue to do the full distance or stop and get a minibus shuttle to the car park. They will be recorded as successfully completing the "half".  For those that want to do the second half only we can accommodate 16 people for transfers and more should they make their own travel arrangements.  Entry forms and further info is on the event Facebook page.
