‘ULTRA EXPERIENCE AT ITS BEST’

You have a really special race, and I feel privileged to be able to take part in it. We are already planning on heading down next year.

Oh @eastdevonround, you, your countryside and wonderful people have stolen my heart. Alasdair, Tim and Esme have created a wonderful event with such a great ethos, profits going to charities, caring for the trails and paths, providing a full weekend of fun for me and my family with camping, food, cheer and amazing prizes!

‘Ultra experience at its best’

'Coming along on Friday night was like meeting up with old friends. Then having a delicious feed and a beer was spot on. The route was beautiful, brilliantly marked and a real challenge. The aid stations were so well stocked and super friendly. Then receiving a medal, t-shirt, bottle of beer and more food was a perfect end.'


'You have a really special race, and I feel privileged to be able to take part in it. We are already planning on heading down next year.'


'As a local it was so nice to run such a stunning (but tough!) route that highlights the natural beauty of East Devon. The ethos of the event as a ‘ultra running social’ and charity fundraiser rather than commercial enterprise is also refreshing

Oh @eastdevonround, you, your countryside and wonderful people have stolen my heart. Alasdair, Tim and Esme have created a wonderful event with such a great ethos, profits going to charities, caring for the trails and paths, providing a full weekend of fun for me and my family with camping, food, cheer and amazing prizes!'


'The legs may be bruised, the energy reserves completely depleted, but there are many reasons I came back this year and as soon as the aches have subsided won’t hesitate to come back next year. You guys have created absolute gem of an event…The course – an absolute monster of epic technical trails through stunning vistas, carpets of beautiful bluebell covered woods, hills with super tough climbs but rewarded with horizon busting views, the sea, the Undercliffs (worthy of a mention all of its own with towering cliffs and tropical rainforest like nature,), the villages full of supportive locals and marshals alike. The people – the dedication and effort by all you guys, the route marking, the aid stations, the unwavering support and the fact that you all care about every single competitor shines strong and bright, you are all incredible. Finally the competitors – ultra running lends itself to friendship, to bonds being formed as we each battle our way through ridiculous distances, the East Devon Round lends itself beautifully to creating these bonds, through the warmth of it’s welcome and it’s embracing care of every competitor from start to finish. It is remarkable how many have returned and a testament to the spirit of the East Devon Round. As one of my fellow club members put it…this is the ultra friendly ultra marathon. A massive thanks to you all for making it happen.'

'I have to say that was one of the best races I've done.'
