Ocean 10km Duo 'Balmy'
The picturesque town of Exmouth is the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, and has two miles of sandy beach, which makes it the perfect venue for a pair of exciting cliff and beach combination runs: the Ocean 10km Duo! Challenge yourself with one of the races, the cooler February `Brave', or the early Summer heat of the `Balmy', or even better complete the Duo!
What better way to start the Brave and Balmy 10k races than on Exmouth’s beautiful seafront? Runners of all levels can take on one, or both of these unique races covering mixed terrain - tarmac, coastal paths and sand (and maybe the sea if the tide beats you!). Whether you know the Exmouth seafront, or are yet to visit it, you are sure to find a great race atmosphere. Bespoke medal for all race finishers, interlocking for the Duo.
PLEASE NOTE - This race is part of the Ocean Race Duo series, The 'Brave' event is on 9th February, the 'Balmy' on 5th July. You can enter either event below, please ensure you have selected the correct event when making your booking. Details for the 'Balmy' race can be found at the bottom of this page.
Bespoke medal for all race finishers, Duo medals look great together.
Running along the promenade to Orcombe Point then up the `zigzigs' and over the cliffs to Sandy Bay. The run will then come down onto the beach to cover the full length of Sandy Bay back along to the Marina slipway, before rejoing the promenade and finishing at Ocean.
The start/ finish line is situated opposite Ocean – the number one family attraction in Exmouth, Ocean has bowling, arcades, soft play, and a bar and grill, all overlooking Exmouth beach. A great place to relax and recover with fellow runners, you'll be able to combine the race with a great trip out to celebrate one of your most exciting 10kms to date.
There's no finish line feeling quite this one!
Test yourself in the early summer heat of the `Balmy'. If you are entering early enough, why not enter the February `Brave' race too and complete the Duo? Compare your times and save some money on combined entries.
