The North Devon AONB Marathon & Half Marathon

  • Date(s): /06/19
  • Address: Woolacombe
  • Postcode: EX34 7DN
  • Telephone: 01271 347213
  • About:

    The North Devon AONB Marathon and Half Marathon has quickly established itself as one of the most challenging and visually stunning events in the UK. With Woolacombe Bay as the centre point, runners follow a figure-of-eight around stunning coastal scenery, inland trails and will take in the scenery of some of North Devon's most beautiful beaches and coastal villages. The steep inclines and variety of terrain is enough to test any experienced runner. There is 1,300ft of ascent for the half marathon and 3,300ft for the full marathon. Half marathon runners will stop after the first loop, with full marathon runners going on to complete the second loop in the figure-of-eight.

    The event is organised by Simon Oliver, a local runner with many years of experience both participating in and organising races. All monies raised through your own personal sponsorship are donated to North Devon Hospice so they can continue to provide free care and support to families who are affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Throughout the event village and along the route, every person helping out is a friend or supporter of North Devon Hospice and someone who has volunteered to help make the event possible.
