Exmoor Coast 50 / North Coast 100

This is your chance to run or walk the entire length of coast path within Exmoor National Park.

We also have a 100 km option – North Coast 100k details below (100 miles in 2020)

5th October 2019.

 

The Exmoor Coast 50 starts at Combe Martin, and heads east to finish in Minehead at the official South West Coast Path start/finish marker.
Tucked away in the Bristol Channel, this section is more sheltered than other parts of the 630 mile South West Coast Path. It has the longest stretch of coastal woodland in England and Wales, highest point on the coastline at Culbone Hill (433m), and highest sea cliff, Great Hangman (244m).

When you’re not surrounded by coastal woods, there are dramatic views across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast and Lundy Island.
The route takes you past Hollow Brook – one of the highest waterfalls in Britain which drops 200 metres to the sea. You will also pass through the twin villages of Lynmouth and Lynton, the finish point for the 2 moors way and our Coast to Coast event.
Nestled away up some winding tracks you will pass by Culbone Church, which is 10.7 metres in length and only seats 30 people; only the most dedicated make it to the services here!


Just after Porlock Bay, the path flattens behind marshland, these wetlands have helped ‘preserve’ an ancient forest, it’s worth a few pictures of these eerie trees sticking out of the ground.


A few more ups & downs of exposed path, woodlands, sharing your journey with sheep, ponies, and cows and you will pop out in Minehead, a mere 56km from where you started!

 

Transport will be available to the start before the event, allowing you to run/walk back to your car.

This can be booked separately for £15.

Full support from the team at Climb South West.

Two checkpoints on the route at roughly 10 mile intervals, at Lynmouth and Porlock Weir. Drinks and a range of sweet and savoury snacks will be available here. First aid support at these locations and mobile units along the course.

Exmoor Coast 50 technical T-shirt for all starters and an Exmoor Coast 50 medal for all finishers.

North Coast 100K

In 2020 there will also be a 100 mile option 

4th October 2019.

 

No current events.

The North Coast 100k starts with an exciting night time start in Barnstaple. The town lights will soon be left behind as you enjoy the only flat section of this route along the Taw estuary. After passing through Braunton Burrows, you’ll climb your first hill above Saunton Sands, before dropping back down to Croyde Bay. 

The next part of the route will take you around Baggy Point, Woolacombe Sands and Morte Point. From here on, the hills increase in size and frequency as you pass Bull Point light house, Lee Bay an on to Ilfracombe. A short section through the town leads to another couple of hills before reaching the stunning Water Mouth Cove and the half way point in Combe Martin.

From Combe Martin, the North Coast 100 joins the Exmoor Coast 50 all the way to Minehead.

Transport will be available to the start before the event, allowing you to run/walk back to your car.

This can be booked separately for £18.
