Race Guide

Date / Time
Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.
Length 17.00 miles (27.4 km)

Did someone mention food/drink and running? Well.......we've amalgamated all three to bring you the Culinary Coastal Canter. A race between two eateries of the finest calibre.

From the Schoolhouse Restaurant in Mothecombe to the Beachhouse Restaurant at South Milton Sands. It's a foodies paradise. 

17 miles of stunning coastal and riverside trails separate them. The South Hams resplendent. 

It's a recipe for a great day out on the South Hams trails. It's a mouthwatering prospect. 

Starting with a river crossing, dramatic South West Coast Path to Bigbury, a run along Bigbury Beach, 6 miles of glorious estuary trails up and down the mouth of the River Avon to Bantham and finally rather more sedate coastal paths to the soft sandy beach finish.

Course will be fully marked, marshalled by runners and have 3 well stocked Aid Stations.

First Aid on course and at HQ, Beachhousedevon TQ73JY 

The first two male and female finishers will receive our bespoke trophies and receive a gift voucher for dining at either the Schoolhouse or Beachhouse. 

Age Category winners for M40/50/60/70 and F40/50/60/70 will receive £5 Discount Voucher for a future pureTrail race. 

A bespoke medal to all finishers. 

Event T-shirt and other pureTrail merchandise are available to purchase online for collection on the day.

Free National Trust parking at Registration/finish area.

Bus transfer can be purchased online at £6 per person.

Race numbers can be collected at the start for those wishing to make there own way to Mothecombe (the Start location). As this is a private carpark there is likely to be a charge if staying to watch the start.
