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 idyllic village of Woolacombe on Devon's north coast, overlooking one of the country's most popular surfing beaches and right in the middle of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (where the race gets its 'AONB' name from).


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.

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.

Event T-shirts
Buy the technical T-shirt when you register! Remember, we don't sell these on the day, only the odd one or two that we might have spare. Please note the sizes come up a little snug, so if in doubt go up a size.
