Join one of the South West's premier running events

Following the success of the 2017 event, the Jewson Barnstaple Marathon will be returning for a fifth year.

The Marathon will leave at 9.00am and head down the north side of the river first; this means tackling the airbase at mile 7-9 before heading back to Barnstaple for the start of the second half which will visit Fremington and Yelland.

Frequent water stops on route, well marshalled course. Predominatly off road on a flat, tarmac wide footpath. There is one stretch on the road which is mainly pavement. Where there is no pavement, cones will be placed on the road and runners will have a safe running channel.
