Half Marathon - Register

The North Devon AONB Marathon and Half Marathon has quickly established itself as one of the most challenging and visually stunning events in the UK. Race HQ is in the surfing idyllic village of Woolacombe on Devon's north coast, overlooking one of the country's most popular beaches and right in the middle of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (where the race gets its 'AONB' name from).

MAKING IT HAPPEN

Event organisers
This event is organised by Simon Oliver, a local runner with many years of experience both participating in and organising races. All monies raised through your own personal sponsorship are donated to North Devon Hospice so they can continue to provide free care and support to families who are affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.  Throughout the event village and along the route, every person helping out is a friend or supporter of North Devon Hospice and someone who has volunteered to help make the event possible.

About the race
2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the North Devon AONB Marathon & Half Marathon. In every year since it's inception the event has sold out, often many months in advance. So if you want to be part of what will be an extra special day (with some special 10th anniversary surprises!) then don't delay and sign up now. The reputation of this event has grown and grown, with runners coming from across the UK and abroad to tackle the legendary course, which offers as many stunning views as it does challenging hills. The multi-terrain course involves roads, trails, beaches, fields, steps and the incredible South West Coast Path. Also known also as 'The Cream Tea Marathon', runners are treated to a traditional Devon Cream Tea at the finish line! Join us and find out why this is one of the must-do events in the running world. 

Runners sponsorship
This event is brought to you by North Devon Hospice and Simon Oliver, to raise money solely for North Devon Hospice.  The fundraising and sponsorship collected by every runner goes towards providing care and support for people affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.  North Devon Hospice needs to raise £4.5 million pounds every year from scratch to continue providing care and support throughout the community.  In addition to the sponsorship forms available to runners, there is a team of fundraisers at the hospice who are happy to help you and support your fundraising ideas.  Please respect the efforts we put into making this event possible every year by only raising money for North Devon Hospice.
