South West 50 Ultra Challenge 2024

  • Date and Time info: 3/08/2024
  • Location: South West Coast
  • Face-to-face

This challenge will see you taking in the first Minehead section of the famous 630 mile Coastal Path and there's an extensive basecamp in the shadows of the impressive Dunster Castle. The 50km loop then heads over Exmoor with ups and downs and some magnificent views, with over 1,600 metres of climb. You’ll get full support all the way and there's 25km options, plus a family friendly 10K event too. There's also weekend camping packages and festival-style hospitality at basecamp too.
