The Challenge

Pick your distance with the 100km, 50km or 25km challenge. For 100km challengers, this South West Challenge takes in the first Minehead section of the stunning & famous 630 mile Coastal Path, and leads to an extensive ‘basecamp’ in the shadows of the impressive Dunster Castle.

The 50 km loop is just as beautiful, heading over Exmoor with ups & downs, and some magnificent views with over 1600 metres of climb. There are also 3 different 25km options to pick your favourite from – there’s a South West Coast Challenge for everyone!

With Alzheimer's Society, an official partner on this event, you get a 50% discount on the ‘Full Sponsorship’ registration fee when signing up to support us.
