Total Coastal - Half Marathon



Age 18 & over

  • 13.1 miles multi terrain running


13.1 Challenging Multi-Terrain Miles all on the South West Coast Path with just over 3,000 ft of ascent. Starting at Preston Green nr Paignton, from here until Torquay Harbour the route is on tarmac, however just after you pass the Imperial Hotel in Torquay the route heads mainly onto the trails again as it heads up and down before reaching Babbacombe Beach, where if you are lucky Sammy the Seal maybe about, then you duck under the famous Babbacombe Cliff Railway and head to Petitor Downs, from this point to the finish you are on very scenic 6 miles of hilly off-road trails. Finishing at The Ness at Shaldon. The route is multi-terrain with around 75% trails but it is all on the South West Coast Path, the majority of tarmac is in the first section from the start to Torquay Harbour. As the route is totally on the South West Coast Path navigation is as simple as keeping the sea on your right and following the Acorn signposts, however we will be adding extra signage and have marshals where needed. There is the option of a £8 coach transfer from Shaldon to Preston Green in time for the start of the Half Marathon. For the finishers of the Half Marathon there is a bespoke medal. There is a very generous 8 Hour Cut-Off for the Half Marathon.
