Want a taste of Britain’s past along with a hearty challenge? Head to Devon County’s coastline for a race that serves up demanding running along with spectacular scenery.
February might not seem like the obvious time of year for a seaside vacation in the British Isles, but the Endurancelife Coastal Trail Series (endurancelife.com) is no ordinary trip. The South Devon stage of the popular series is a mix of tough off-road running and stunning landscapes. The race is billed as “picturesque and punishing” because of the steep climbs and technical terrain, but don’t be put off by the tagline. With a 10k, half marathon, marathon and 35-mile ultra to choose from, there’s a challenge to suit every experience level.
