Join one of the South West's premier running events
Following the success of the 2018 event, the Jewson Barnstaple Marathon will be returning for a sixth 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. Predominantly 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.
The Jewson Barnstaple Marathon and Half marathon has rapidly established itself as one of the south west's premier running events. With a flat, fast course, a large (but not too large!) field and loads of support; it is a perfect marathon for first timers and experienced runners alike.
The Jewson Barnstaple Marathon is a family friendly event, with loads of activities for kids and partners whilst waiting for the race to finish. There will be bouncy castles, face painting, children's entertainment, a bar, loads of food stalls and other stalls including activity stalls. It is a perfect family day out!
