Exe Estuary 50K Ultra

Multi-terrain 50k along the Exe Estuary and South West Coast Path

Starting at Dawlish Warren in South Devon the route heads up the scenic Exe Estuary passing by picturesque Cockwood Harbour, Powderham Castle and its Deer park, Starcross and into Exeter Riverside Park, here the Ultra route splits from the Marathon route for 5 miles and  heads further up river before crossing over the river and then goes down the other side of the Exe Estuary, rejoining the Marathon route through the villages of Topsham and Lympstone and onto Exmouth seafront, where you follow the stunning South West Coast Path to Budleigh Salterton and the finish line by the beach.

The route is multi-terrain and for Devon the majority is flat with the main ascent being the South West Coast Path section, there is approx 1300 ft of ascent for the 50k

The route is easy to navigate on Country Lanes, Riverside Paths and Trails but we will have signage, markings and marshals along the route. The roads you will run on are quiet but are not closed roads and there are some road crossings, including two crossings of the busy Bridge Road in Exeter, where you will use the Pelican Crossings helped by marshals. 

There is the option of a £6 coach transfer from Lime Kiln Car Park, Budleigh Salterton at 6.30am to Dawlish Warren in time for the start of the Ultra.

For the finishers of the Ultra there is a big bespoke medal and finishers T-shirt.
