There will be 4 checkpoints for the 52Km and 2 checkpoints for the 32Km, with simple food and cold drinks available. A pasty & hot & cold drinks will be available at the finish, all included in the entry fee. If you think you need some more food, then you may bring a little food & drink of your own.

Please bring a mug for drinks at the checkpoints and at the Hall, as there will be no cups available, we are trying to reduce the volume of plastic used.

 

Entrants must be able to read a map and follow compass bearings and must have sufficient knowledge, experience, equipment and navigational skills to take part in this walk in all conditions and especially in the event of bad weather.

 

All routes are covered by the OS Explorer 115 Exmouth & Sidmouth (1:25,000).

Because the routes have been agreed with private landowners it is important that you keep to them at all times.
