About the trail

At 630 miles (1,014 km), the South West Coast Path is England’s longest National Trail and has good claim to being the most spectacular too.

The route spans a wonderful variety of running, over rugged clifftops, around sheltered coves, harbours, fishing villages and across heather moorland. Out here, you’ll find stirring views over the open sea and the British countryside, alongside devilish daily mileages.

It’s not just the distance that daunts, though: the route constantly rises and falls and will leave your calves whimpering. In fact, it’s more common for runners to attempt it one chunk at a time rather than all in one go.

We offer the South West Coast Path in sections, allowing you to piece together the most suitable route for your time and stamina. Of course, if you’re prepared for the challenge of the whole route, you can run these sections consecutively to cover the entire 630-mile trail.

South Devon Run

From Plymouth to Brixham, run along wave-battered sandstone cliffs and down to tranquil wooded estuaries on the South Devon stage of the South West Coast Path. This 67-mile trail running holiday offers tricky ascents across rugged headlands in its first half, but slopes down to inland stretches through rolling farmland on its way to Brixham. It’s perhaps the most varied section of the Coast Path and perfect if you’re looking to test different aspects of your trail running skill set.
