The South West Coast Path Head to Head Trail Running Challenge returns in 2021, with a marathon as well as the half marathon and 10K. Set at East Soar Outdoor Experience near Salcombe in Devon, the trails and coastal paths are stunning! Canicross friendly.

The 10K takes you out of East Soar and over the rolling fields towards Bolberry, with views as far as the eye you head up to Bolberry Down and follow the incredible coastal path back towards Bolt Head at Salcombe. After leaving the coast path you will head back to up East Soar Farm to finish, with views all around you as you make your way up the final hill.

If you take on the the 22K, you will be heading through Bolberry on to South Hursh and around the gorgeous village of Hope Cove before joining the the coast path and enjoying the path all the way to Overbecks House, where you will go around the National Trust property before heading back up to the finish.

We are now ordering The Reverse on Sunday 18th April 2021 – Which means if you are tough enough you can to the double header and run both days, with the Sunday running the course in reverse.

The 45k distance is two laps of the 22k route.

There is now a 10% discount if you are entering both days! Just add the events to your basket and the discount will be applied. 

A wonderful trail run working with the National Trust South West.
