After that, it is absolutely pancake flat; and very, very fast. Looking for a PB? This is your course.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eBoth races start and finish at Rock Park in Barnstaple and head down Ladies mile. Turning left onto Taw Vale, the runners will pass down one of the most scenic roads in the town. Down onto the main square and over the old bridge the runners will reach mile 1 as they head onto the Tarka trail at the old Shapland and petter site.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eFrom there it\u0027s the Tarka trail all the way to Fremington and then up the Fremington Quay road (closed to traffic) to the main road. The route follows the main road all the way to Yelland, the road is not closed but there is pavement for most of the route, sections that don\u0027t have pavement will be coned off. There is one small incline out of Fremington and that\u0027s the one bump in the whole race.\u003c/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eAt Yelland the runners head back to Barnstaple on the Tarka Trail and cross the old bridge and head onto the Strand (closed to traffic all day.)\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eOn the Strand the race will split. The half marathoners will turn left just before the old fountain and left again to go under the underpass and head back to the park to the finish.\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eThe full marathoners will run all the way along the Strand to the Civic Centre car park where they will access the Tarka trail again. This time it\u0027s straight out to Wrafton where the route takes a left onto the road and heads up to the main road. The route follows the main road until the roundabout where the runners will turn left and head down towards Vellator.\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eNext comes a little out and back section at Vellator. This is necessary to ensure that we have exactly the right distance for the route. Runners will head towards the car park at Vellator and perform a dignified and balletic U-turn around a strategically placed cone before heading back to the roundabout. There the route goes back onto the Tarka trail and heads down to Crash Gate 1 at RMB Chivenor.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eNow comes the exciting bit, running across the base at Chivenor! Be under no illusions, this is tough. Yes, it is pretty much flat, but due to security reasons, we are not allowed to put anyone on the base.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eThe route now becomes a lonely trek around the perimeter track. There are no spectators allowed on the base for obvious reasons but there will be marshals, a water station, first aid and some snipers provided by the base. Apparently, if you drop below your goal speed the snipers will offer some encouragement for you......\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003e\u0026nbsp;The 2.5 miles of track at the base will fly by and before you know it you\u0027ll be at Crash gate 2 and heading through the outside of the camp back to Chivenor roundabout. Once there you\u0027ll pick up the Tarka trail and head home. All the way back to the park, it\u0027s a straight run in, doubtless, the wind will be behind you and you\u0027ll gallop along to a new PB and the adoration of your friends and family.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWater Stations:\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003eThere are frequent water stops on the route, see the map below for their location. There is only water available on half marathon but there are gels, isotonic drinks and other goodies on the full marathon course. This year the race will be cupless.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003ca href=\u0022https://www.strava.com/routes/11079339\u0022 target=\u0022_blank\u0022\u003eMARATHON ROUTE (Strava)\u003c/a\u003e\u003c/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\u0022text-justify\u0022\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003ca href=\u0022https://www.strava.com/routes/11079376\u0022 target=\u0022_blank\u0022\u003eHALF MARATHON ROUTE (Strava)\u003c/a\u003e\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e","ContentConfig":{"Caption":null,"Icon":null,"IconColour":null,"CaptionColour":null,"UnderlineColour":null,"TextColour":null,"PaddingLeft":"10px","PaddingTop":"10px","PaddingRight":"10px","PaddingBottom":"10px","FontSize":null,"LineHeight":null,"BottomMargin":0,"PhoneVisible":true,"TabletVisible":true,"DesktopVisible":true},"ComponentCode":null,"ComponentError":null,"BottomMargin":0,"ResponsiveClasses":"","Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"Filter":null,"IsParallax":false,"Image":""},"ImageConfig":{"ImageURL":null,"ObjectFit":"contain","ImageHeight":null,"FrameStyle":null,"BorderRadius":null,"AltText":null,"LinkURL":null,"PaddingLeft":null,"PaddingTop":null,"PaddingRight":null,"PaddingBottom":null,"BottomMargin":0,"PhoneVisible":true,"TabletVisible":true,"DesktopVisible":true}}]}],"ColumnSpacing":0,"BottomMargin":0,"TopPadding":0,"IsFullWidth":false,"IsBackgroundFullWidth":false,"Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"Filter":null,"IsParallax":false,"Image":""}}],"PageURL":"https://www.northdevonroadrunners.com/Cms/Spaces/JBMHM/Jewson+Barnstaple+Marathon++Half+Marathon++Routes?version=11","AllVersions":[{"ID":49,"Name":"v1 - Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon Routes - Justin Beckley - 02/11/2017 18:20"},{"ID":50,"Name":"v2 - Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon Routes - Justin Beckley - 02/11/2017 20:18"},{"ID":60,"Name":"v3 - Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon Routes - Justin Beckley - 02/11/2017 21:14"},{"ID":231,"Name":"v4 - Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon Routes - Justin Beckley - 27/02/2018 11:25"},{"ID":232,"Name":"v5 - Jewsons Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon Routes - Justin Beckley - 27/02/2018 11:27"},{"ID":234,"Name":"v6 - Jewsons Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon | Routes - Justin Beckley - 27/02/2018 11:36"},{"ID":458,"Name":"v7 - Jewsons Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon | Routes - NDRR Marathon - 15/01/2019 16:37"},{"ID":511,"Name":"v8 - Jewson Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon | Routes - Justin Beckley - 20/02/2019 14:38"},{"ID":545,"Name":"v9 - Jewson Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon | Routes - Justin Beckley - 25/02/2019 16:28"},{"ID":703,"Name":"v10 - Jewson Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon | Routes - Justin Beckley - 07/03/2021 21:48"},{"ID":816,"Name":"v11 - Jewson Barnstaple Marathon \u0026 Half Marathon | Routes - Justin Beckley - 14/09/2022 20:55"}],"Comments":[],"UpdatedComments":[],"Spaces":[],"IsWatching":false,"LastViewTime":null,"CanEdit":false,"CanPublish":false,"CanCopy":false,"CanComment":false,"CanReadComments":false,"CanModerateComments":false,"CanLike":false,"CanWatch":false}
