Sign up for September Westward Ho! charity event
There are only a couple weeks to go until The Kipling Coastal Run being held by Bideford Rotary Club.
The event begins at 10am for walkers and juniors and 10:30 for runners on September 15 with the start and finish point at The Pier House, Merley Road, Westward Ho!
The eight mile course is a glorious combination of road, track, beach and cliff path providing a scenic yet challenging route, with the highlights of the course undoubtedly being the sandy Westward Ho! beach and the coastal path overlooking Lundy Island.
As well as the adult eight mile course there is a three mile junior race and walkers are also encouraged to take part.
There will be prizes for the top three men and women in each age category and a free T-shirt for every finisher. Food and drink will be available all day in The Pier House.
The entry fee is £10.00 in advance or £12.00 for those that sign up on the day, with all profits going to charity. The adult race is only for over 17s and the course is not suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs or dogs.
