This was a friendly challenge organised by a club in Devon.

It was supported by a large land rover for food and supplies every couple of miles and the aim was for everyone to complete the run as a group.

As a nucleus of 3 decided to run the whole way, many other runners joined for parts of the run, some running 5 miles, others running 10 or more and with the transport, people were able to run or ctch a lift depending how they felt.

We collected a pebble at the beach in Quantocks and ran over the hills before carrying the pebble to the coast down at Seaton where we threw it in the surf to complete the challenge.

After bad winter storms, many footpaths were damaged and many footbridges washed away, there is nothing like splashing through freezing cold streams to wake you up..!!

We started at dawn and we finished just before dusk and was a very enjoyable challenge to complete.
