7 Hour Challenge event!
What distance will you do? Solo or Relay?
Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, Ultra or something inbetween!
Join us at Starcross for our latest fun event, a 7 hour challenge event alongside the Exe Estuary!
You have 7 hours to run as many laps as you want, to achieve your chosen distance or even beat your chosen distance! You can stop anytime after just one lap.
Each lap is an out and back, which will make for a very social fun event, as you will see your fellow runners on each lap you do.
Starting at Starcross the picturesque route follows the Exe Estuary alongside the grounds of Powderham Castle, where you may catch sight of the Deer, then it heads along the Exe Estuary Trail past the Turf Lock Hotel, before the turn around point at mile 3.3, here you turn and head back to Starcross HQ, where another aid station will be, then you choose to finish here or do another lap, its up to you!
