Introduction

Inspired by the Atlantic and Jurassic Coast Challenges the Devon Coast Challenge is the latest new event in Votwo’s original 3 marathons in 3 days format.

The route starts near Hartland Point and finishes Porlock Bay. Complete up to 78.6 miles (3 marathons) over 3 days by walking, running or crawling along the South West Coast Path.

The route passes over simply stunning coastal areas and passes famous towns and villages such as Croyde Bay, Lynton and Lynmouth, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and The Valley of the Rocks.

Votwo has teamed up with Geo Tracks. This system provides runners with a personal GPS tracker and navigation mobile phone app allowing them to accurately navigate the course and receive real-time positions of the other participants and themselves.
