The Challenge

The Full 100km Challenge, with 2,100m of climb, starts on the Minehead coast - then it's through forests and in to the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Across moorland and a climb up Dunkery Beacon - Exmoor's highest point - with amazing panoramic views, before descending to Dulverton and on to the 'half way' stop at Tiverton along the Exe Valley.

From Tiverton it's country lanes, farmland, woodlands, picturesque villages and castles before the suburbs of Exeter come into view, where we pick up the canal towpath. The estuary widens as we head south on to the coastal path, and is teeming with birdlife as we approach the sea and the sandy beaches at Dawlish - where a very welcome finish line celebration awaits.
