Channel Events are proud and excited to be working in partnership with the Somerset & Exmoor Coast Festival to bring you the brand new Somerset Coast Challenge!

This fantastic trail running event will kick off the Somerset & Exmoor Coast Festival for 2024 with 100km or marathon distance options along the beautiful Somerset Coast.

The Marathon option will start at the Hands Monument in Minehead after registering at Bridgwater Docks and finish at the National Trust’s Brean Down Cafe after completing a lap of Brean Down. The event wouldn’t be complete without visiting iconic landmarks at the start and finish.

The event will be ‘self-navigated’, you’ll will be keeping the sea to your left through your journey and following the King Charles III England Coast Path way markers. To assist you we will supply via downloads a route description, route maps and a GPX file.

This beautiful route will take you along the coast passing through many wonderful locations including Bridgwater Docks, Pawlett Hams, Burnham on Sea, Berrow Dunes and Brean Down.

The initial response to this new event via social media has been overwhelming and we hope this transfers into fantastic entry numbers and over time make this a ‘Must do’ ultra/marathon.

See you on the start line!
