Entry From £165 GBP

Now in its 13th year the more windswept and, some might say, interesting younger sibling of the Jurassic Coast Challenge.

The route starts near Padstow and finishes at Lands End. Complete up to 78.6 miles (3 marathons) over 3 days by walking, running or crawling, putting your mental and physical prowess against some of the wildest coastline in Britain. 

Dare to complete 1, 2 or 3 days. Every Atlantic Coast Challenge starter receives an event T-shirt and every finisher receives a classic challenge medal and Cornish Pasty.

Monday morning proof to your work colleagues or family that you completed the toughest 3-day Votwo challenge!  

Wild and rugged. Steep climbs and descents that test your concentration as well as your strength. Each day is unique with it's own individual challenges and famous landmarks to add to the experience.

The course follows the South West Coast path which is marked by the Acorn sign. It's a very obvious well-worn route. You will be issued with course maps and the emphasis is on self-navigation. In most cases it's as easy as keeping the sea on your right and the land on your left.

A beautiful course in a stunning location. Race organisation was good. On site catering was very good - food tasty and plenty of it! I would recommend it.
