New 10k race being held on Saturday, September 14, the same day as Landkey Festival.

THE people that brought you the gruelling Hartland Hartbreaker have devised a new torment – the first ever Codden Challenge.

The 10 kilometre run will include an ascent of the steep Codden Hill and will be hosted alongside the Landkey Festival, on Saturday, September 14.

Proceeds from both events go to the Chemotherapy Appeal and for community facilities at Landkey.

The run is being organised by North Devon Road Runners, which hosted the Hartbreaker earlier in the year for Children’s Hospice South West.
