The fundraising event with a difference on Sunday, June 2 invites walkers or runners to take part in a 10-mile circular foodfest on the move for the Over and Above Cancer Centre Appeal.

Local food suppliers will be offering small morsels of delicious local produce for each participant to enjoy while cover the route through the picturesque villages of Croyde, Saunton, Georgeham and Putsborough and back to Croyde.

The food is provided in small amounts so runners are still able to reach the finish line.

To avoid everyone arriving at the food stops at the same time, there are lots of staggered start times, and attracts both walkers, runners from local running clubs and local food enthusiasts, many of whom dress up - this year's theme is the Wild West.

There are only 20 tickets left so anyone wanting to take part is encouraged to book early because it is expected to sell out as it does every year

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.

"It is thanks to the overwhelming support we have from our main event sponsors Marsdens Holiday Cottages and our event zones sponsored by Webbers, John Smale and Boden Fire & Security, and Brend Hotels, all the food and drink sponsors and the landowners that enable this event to happen.

"I can't believe we are now in our fifth year. We just can't wait!"

Rob Cooper, owner of the Orchard Farm Shop has been busy organising the menu with food suppliers.

The tasty morsels include yoghurt and hummus to hand-baked bread, flapjacks, hot soup, trout pate, honey, cheese, beer, cider and much more besides.

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