JP’s Exe to Axe



Age 18 & over

  • 22 miles trail running


The race starts at the Foxes Hole Car Park on the Exmouth Sea Front with a mass start. The route follows the South West Coast Path for 22 miles and finishes at the Esplanade at Seaton. This is the 20th year of the race. Originally the distance was just over 20 miles, but a landslip in June 2012 on the outskirts of Seaton has led to a detour which means the distance is now nearer 22 miles. The race has been renamed JP’s Exe to Axe in memory of John Perratt, founding member and long-term Treasurer of Sidmouth Running Club, and a huge contributor to the sport throughout East Devon. The race is for individuals and relay teams, dogs are not permitted. There are drink stations at Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth Sailing Club, Branscombe Mouth, and of course at the finish at Seaton. There will be a back marker marshal. The route follows the coastal path all the way so keep the sea on your right and follow the acorn signs.
