17 June 2017
The Coleton Footacher was founded in 2016, and takes place along the coast path from the beautiful Coleton Fishacre
The 2017 Event takes place on Saturday 17th June 6.30pm. The 6.3 mile course takes runners from outside the National Trust house at Coleton Fishacre. You will run up the driveway before changing onto trails to drop towards the coast path. Once off the coast path you will be rewarded during various climbs and falls by stunning sea and coastal views before dropping down to the WW2 Gun Batteries at Froward Point. A climb up away from the coast and a drop back down through the fields brings you to the final stretch up through the gardens of one of the top five National Trust gardens in the UK (you can always appreciate on your cool down!). Certainly a beautiful one for your spectators.
The run is fully marshalled, and the course is marked to national standards. Toilets are all provided.
1st aid coverage will be in attendance and Catering facilities will all be available.
Kids fun run (1 mile). Start 6.45pm (during the adult race) £2 online entry, £3 on night.

Torbay AC: "Well Organised South Devon Athletic Club Race.. A challenging, hilly, off road race. Approximately 6 miles, crossing the South West Coast Path, tracks, woodland and fields. Stunning views and changing landscapes throughout. A unique location and opportunity to run through the National Trust land and estate surrounding Coleton Fishacre, Brixham"
Marc Jones: " Seriously one of the best races I have ever done. Definitely now one of my favourites, will be an annual run for me!"
