Someone treks along a coast line

South West Coast 50

Date: 1st August 2022

Join the team

A new ‘South West’ challenge for 2022–taking in the initial section of the stunning and famous 630 mile Coastal Path, which officially starts in Minehead, and close to our extensive ‘base-camp’ in the shadows of the impressive Dunster Castle.

The 50 km loop heads over Exmoor with ups and downs and some magnificent views with over 1600 metres of climb. You’ll get full support all the way, a finish line celebration, and with three 25 km options also, along with camping options and festival style hospitality at basecamp across the weekend–there’s a South West Coast Challenge for everyone!

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.

Challenge options

  • Half Challenge – 50km
  • Quarter Challenge – 25km

Emma and Anna tell us why they took on a trek for Dementia UK:

The walk was both emotionally and physically challenging.  But I can’t explain how lovely the support was around. Locals left out chairs with rest stops, with glasses of water and oranges; not to mention the moral support from the other people taking part.
