Overview

The South West Coast Path is the longest National Trail in England at 630 miles (1014 km). Two relay teams, of 68 runner each, will battle it out to see who completes the full trail in the fastest time!

The SWCP relay record

This challenge has taken place twice before in 2020 and 2022. In those years just one team took on the challenge.

The current record of 5 days, 2 hours and 47 minutes was set during the 2020 challenge.

We think 2023 is the year for this to be broken!

Challenge format

This is a non-stop relay with legs of about 10-mile each. Each team member only runs one relay leg.

At each of the designated handover points your team's tracking baton will be handed over to the next runner. This process continues, day and night, until the trail is complete!

Why it's so fun!

Have a break from the norm with a new exciting challenge format. Join a team of like-minded individuals who love the trails, make some friends and have fun! ..Oh yes, and just maybe break that record!

When

The challenge will be starting in the afternoon of the 28th of July 2023. It will last for approximately 5 days and nights.

How to enter

Find your leg below, click on it and then sign-up to either the Red or the White team. We look forward to welcoming you on to this great challenge!

FAQs

Common questions you might have

What is the cost?

26. This challenge is designed to be as cheap and therefore as accessible as possible. The charge is set at a nominal price to cover the direct costs associated with running this challenge. This includes: VAT, us coordinating the challenge, gps tracking, a t-shirt and postage and a 5 donation to the SWCP association.

What are the booking terms?

If your plans change or you simply change your mind:

Cooling off period: You can receive a full refund (no fees or charges) should you change your mind within 5 days of booking. Just pop us an email and we will action this for you within 24hrs.

Transferring your entry to a friend: You can transfer your entry (leg) to someone else at anytime so long as it is more than 48hrs away from the relay commencing. Get in touch with us via email and we will help with this.

Cancellation: You will always be given a full refund (no fees or charges) if the event has to be cancelled.

Postponement: You will always be given the following three options should an event have to be postponed (date changed). You will have one week from the date the event is postponed to make your choice:

  • Accepting the new event date (this is the default option if you make no choice).
  • Transferring to one of our other event locations for any date in the future.
  • A refund (less a booking & card processing fee which will never be more than 10).
Will I get a t-shirt or a medal?

We will post you a special team "SWCP Relay" t-shirt prior to the challenge. Although there is no obligation we hope you will wear it during the challenge! There are no medals awarded.

What is the difference between the Red and the White team?

Nothing!

Can I take part in both the Red and the White team?

No.

Can I book on to more than one leg?

No. At least not initially. The numbers able to take part in this challenge are limited so we kindly ask that you only register yourself on to one leg of one team. If there are any unfilled legs closer to the challenge date then we will open these up to existing team members - so this will be your opportunity to run more than one leg.

Does it matter which team I choose to join?

No! It's open entry for either team (Red or White). Unless you are wanting to be part of the same team as someone else then there is no benefit or disadvantage to being part of either team. It is deliberate that both teams are open to anyone in the trail running community - this random way of creating the teams will mean that both are fairly evenly matched!

Can I be on the same team as my friend?

Yes - but only if you plan ahead, both know which team you are looking to join (Red or White) and grab the legs quickly when bookings open! Failing that it is still better to grap your preferred leg on either team. After booking pop us an email and we will do our best to shuffle participants to try to get you both on the same team.

Can I run with a friend?

Yes. You are more than welcome to run with someone else but it will only be you who is part of the official challenge / team.

Is there a reserve list if I miss out on my preferred leg?

From experience there will be drop-outs prior to the challenge kicking off - but there won't be many. As such we would recommend you signing up for another leg if you feel you can do it, even if it isn't your preferred leg. Then pop us an email and we will have you on record should your preferred leg become available.

How does the team communicate?

Whatsapp. 72hrs from the challenge starting we will create two Whatsapp groups - one for Team Red and one for Team White. On your group you can introduce yourself, chat to the rest of the team and provide encouragement. We will also be asking you to update your progress and share photos of yourself during your leg once the challenge kicks off.

SMS. 72hrs from the challenge we will send you an email. Within this email we will share with you two contacts. These will be the names and phone numbers of the two people on the legs before and after you. Although we encourage all communication and chat to take place on the Whatsapp group there could be a need for more direct communication with your closest team mates (for example if you arrive at your hand over point and you can't locate each other or there is a black spot in mobile data coverage so Whatsapp doesn't work).

How accurate are the estimates start times of each leg?

These are estimates and your actual start time will almost definitely change, falling either earlier or later than this published time.

It is worth noting that, once the teams have been formed, we will be asking all team members to provide a guide on their anticipated time for their leg. At this point we will update the predicted times across all legs and this will give you a more accurate indication of when your leg start time is likely to be.

Once the relay is in progress all legs' anticipated start times will dynamically adjust on an ongoing basis.

Are there any prerequisites of taking part?

Yes. You will need to agree to the following as part of the booking process:

  1. You will recce your chosen leg prior to the challenge, to ensure you are familiar with it.
  2. You will have someone to support you during your participation. This could be some who runs with you or simply someone who follows you in a vehicle, checking in on you and providing support if or when needed.
  3. You are happy to communicate via WhatsApp and happy for your contact number to be shared with other runners on your team for the duration of the challenge.
Is this an organised event?

We, Endurancelife, set the challenge and control the formation of the teams but the challenge itself is "unsupported" by us. This means we don't provide medical cover or supplies such as water or nutrition. This is why we insist that to take part you must have your own support person.

Will there be medical cover during the challenge?

No. You must have your own support person to help you on the challenge should you need it.

How does the tracking of the relay work?

GPS tracking: Each team has a gps tracking baton. This is passed from team member to team member as the relay progress through the legs. A link to follow your team's baton will be shared prior to the start of the challenge.

Online / webpage updates: We will be updating the progress of the relay on the relay webpage. This will mean the estimated departure times of each leg will dynamically update here as the relay progresses. This is the primary method of keeping up-to-date with your team's progress. Although the GPS tracking is fun to watch, due to data blackspots, it will go through periods of down-time.

Your Team's Whatsapp group: By keeping an eye on your team's group chat you will know which leg your team is currently on.
