Exe Estuary 50k, Marathon & Half Marathon - October 17th 2021
Multi-terrain routes along the Exe Estuary
All the events start at the Race HQ which is situated at the end of Marine Drive in Exmouth nr Orcombe Point, all the routes head along Exmouth Prom to Exmouth Marina and then join the Exe Estuary Trail through Lympstone and on to Exton, at Exton the Half Marathon runners turn around at the aid station and head back the way they came to Exmouth and the finish line at Race HQ, the 50k and Marathon runners continue through Exton, through Topsham and into Exeter Riverside Park at Bridge Road, here they do a large loop around the Riverside Park and the Quayside before returning to Bridge Road, the Marathon runners head back through Topsham etc along the Exe Estuary trail to Exmouth and the finish line, while the 50k runners do a second loop before heading back to Exmouth.
The route is multi-terrain, although very good underfoot and for Devon the majority is flat or gently undualting there is approx 900ft of ascent for the 50k, 800ft for the Marathon, 400ft for the Half Marathon.
The route is easy to navigate on Country Lanes, Riverside Paths and Trails but we will have extra signage, markings and marshals along the route. The roads you will run on are quiet but are not closed roads and there are some road crossings, including two crossings of the busy Bridge Road in Exeter, where you will use the Pelican Crossings helped by marshals.
For the finishers there is a big bespoke medal and finishers T-shirt.
There is a generous 9 Hour Cut-Off for the 50K and Marathon and 6 hour cut off for the Half Marathon.
The Exe Estuary is a cupless event, all runners will need to bring there own cup or bottle.
