The South West Head to Head Trail Running Challenge returns for year two, with another distance to choose from! Set at East Soar Outdoor Experience near Salcombe in Devon, the trails and coastal paths are stunning!

The new 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 fisish, 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.

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

We also use striped tape, these are placed after any split to reassure you that you are on the correct trail. We also use them along long stretches where no turn off is required or directional arrows needed.
