Course information

The Barnstaple route follows a circular course along the flat and scenic Tarka Trail paths around central Barnstaple, returning through Rock Park. The terrain is a mixture of paved pathways and grass.

Meeting point

The start line is adjacent to the Tarka Tennis Centre. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

Car parking is available adjacent to the event area.

The nearest train station is Barnstaple Station, which is roughly a 15 minute walk away from the venue, or a quick taxi ride.

The venue is a short 10 minute walk from the town centre.

Dogs allowed
Suitable for pushchairs
Wheelchair accessible
No bag drop
No showers

This event is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance due to the grass on the main event site and a slight decline at the end of the course.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course!

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
