This is where the Coastal Trail Series was born. Now in its 10th year the South Devon stage has become a cult classic. The course is contained within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is simultaneously picturesque and punishing. With its blend of jagged rocks interspersed with idyllic sandy coves, this coastline is jaw droppingly beautiful and hugely inspiring.

The event sells out every year, and you'll soon see why as you weave your way around the technical coastline, before heading inland to tackle a few of the infamous Devon hills!

Please click here to read in more detail about how the Starts of each event may be conducted on the day (subject to capacity), and here to read more about course closure and cut-off times.

Your participant number will be on display at registration on event day. Paper running numbers, electronic timing chips, and all other items will be issued at Registration; nothing will be sent to you through the post prior to the event.


Please follow signage and Marshals' instructions upon arrival. Due to the small, sensitive locations used for the CTS events, in some instances parking may be located a short walk from the event base - a nice little warm up! We also ask, due to contingency arrangements, that you bring some change for car parking in case you are required to park in our backup locations (in such instances you may well also be taken by bus to the event - so please be aware of this too!). Your patience when such situations occur is very much appreciated. Endurancelife strongly advocate car sharing and our Facebook site is a good medium for this.
