Walkers will be treated to a culinary feast this weekend as they take part in the Scrumptious Croyde Trail for Over and Above.

The 10-mile circular foodfest on the move will see producers offering small morcels of local produce as participants walk or run the routie.

The sponsored event on Sunday, June 3, will take them through Croyde, Saunton, Georgeham and Putsborough and then back to Croyde.

Among the treats lined up for participants include creamy yoghurt and hand-baked granola; flpajacks and brownies; tasty hummus; smoked trout pate; honey and freshly-baked bread.

There will also be fruity squash, a selection of cheeses, meringues, ciders, ales and more.

Fundraiser Julie Whitton said: “This event has so many appeals – it attracts walkers and runners to the area and truly has some of the best views in the world overlooking fabulously scenic hot spots, and with around 25 local food producers offering delicious morsels of food at every stop.

“What more could you ask for?”

Entry is limited to 300 and there will be staggered start times to avoid queues at the food stops.

There are only a few tickets left so anyone wanting to take part is encouraged to book early because with such stunning scenery along a fabulous coastline and delicious scrumptious foods on offer the event is expected to sell out as it does every year.

Fancy dress is encouraged and this year’s theme will be cartoon characters.

The entry fee is only £28 plus a small online booking fee. This cost includes the food the participants will eat along the route.
