Free Bond Place Sponsorship £250

The 2018 Jewson Barnstaple Marathon and Half Marathon will take place on 30th September this year.

As a benefiting charity, North Devon Road Runners have kindly donated five free bond places to us. We now only have two of these places left. If you'd like to take on the challenge of a marathon whilst taking in the local sights and raising vital funds for North Devon Hospice, please get in touch with Claire in the Fundraising team.

We ask that you raise £250 to qualify for a place. If you already have a place but would like to run for North Devon Hospice, we'd love to hear from you.

The Marathon will leave at 9am 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.

The Half Marathon is the same as previously, and starts at 10am. ​It then heads through Barnstaple and onto the Tarka trail towards Fremington.

For the last 3 years, this race has sold out, we anticipate this happening this year too. Therefore if you want to run in either of the races, you will need to enter now!

Entry Rules:

You must be 18 on race day to enter both the Half and Full Marathon.

Race run under licence from ARC
