CITY TO SEA
MARATHON & HALF MARATHON
The Marathon starts at Exeter Quayside and follows the Exe Estuary to Dawlish Warren, this is where the Half Marathon starts, now it follows the Sea Wall to Dawlish and the South West Coast Path to Teignmouth and across Shaldon Bridge to Shaldon, this section is mainly flat tarmac with some gravel paths, from Shaldon the route is hilly trails all the way to Babbacombe Downs and the finish line. Both distances can be run or walked!
We will be adding signage and have marshals where needed on the route, however the vast majority is keep the Exe Estuary on your left and then keep the sea on your left. The Coast path is well marked with Acorn Signage.
