On Saturday 17 June 2017 it was the Tsunami Coastal Marathon – starting off from the tiny Harbour in Clovelly. This race over 26.2 miles of the most brutal hilly testing coastline involves over 2000 metres of climbing & very many tricky descents – requiring skill & some luck to negotiate. The race starts with the tortuous ascent over the cobbles from Clovelly before heading out along the beautiful scenic but rocky and hilly coast. The race started early but still in very hot weather. The course was organised & very well marshalled by Pure Trail Running with many much needed water & fuel stations on route.

On 18 th June it was the Burrator Horseshoe a 7 mile hilly excursion around Dartmoor starting from the village of Meavy and going out via Burrator Reservoir, involving some steep hill climbing. Having already run in the Bude Lifeboat Run on Wednesday did not deter speedy husband and wife team Doug and Hayley Stacey from racing again. Doug Stacey finished in 6th place overall in 47.25 and Hayley finished in 61.52. Brilliant performances twice in one week.
