Sid Valley Ring Half Marathon
29th April 2023
Entries now open!
Back for a third year in 2023. The Sid Valley Ring Half Marathon follows the newly created Sid Valley Ring walking route. This was a joint venture between Sidmouth Town Council and the Sid Vale Association. A donation from your entry fee will go towards the maintenance of this trail. Further information about the trail can be found here: Sid Valley Ring
With an “uphill start”, the route takes you through quiet country lanes and footpaths and climbs to a height of 236m, before dropping down into the pretty village of Sidbury. Another section of back lanes lead to the tiny hamlet of Harcombe, the “Valley of Hares”, just before a steep climb towards Dunscombe cliffs and the coast path. Stunning views along here across Lyme Bay, stretching as far as Portland and Berry Head. A short excursion inland takes you through the picturesque village of Salcombe Regis, a woodland section, and back to the coast path. The views on the final downhill section to Sidmouth are incredible!
