Hi,

 Just to let you know that entries have opened for this gruelling off road marathon and half marathon set amongst a real jewel of Devonshire coast and countryside!  

Next year there will be space for 750 runners and if this year is anything to go by they will sell out super fast again. We event had entries from America, Europe and South Africa...not to mention a large entry from the 100 marathon club!

 All monies raised will go to North Devon Hospice who are organising the event.

There's a cream tea waiting for all participants and we hope that the weather next year (26th June to be exact) won't be quite so hot!

 Again, it will be a real test of mettle with some road work, green lanes, footpaths, coastal paths, fields (including stiles!), beach and burrows (that's dune's to the none Devonish out there).  

 Full details and on-line entry links can be found at www.northdevonmarathon.co.uk or contact Emma on 01271 347213 for more information!
