The North Coast Challenge is 145 miles from Masland Mouth which is the border between Cornwall and Devon to Lands End. It was first run by local legendary ultra runner Steve 'The Pirate' Wyatt in Dec 2013. Since then only Wendy Chapman in 2018 had completed it in the Winter season. Until now when Jim Spencer started at 10pm on Bonfire Night.
Jim talks yes through his 53 hour adventure which actually ended up being 151 miles as his navigation went astray a couple of times enroute.
Jim tops tips if you are thinking of tackling this:

  • Learn how to navigate and do some pre-run route plotting
  • Make sure you are in prime condition
