Trail: Baggy Point (0)
Contributor: markroberts Activity Type: Trail Running Difficulty: Average Distance: 9.065 mi (14.589 km)
Description: This is a run along the wild Atlantic edge of Devon. It's a route that's very varied and includes the wide open beaches of Woolacombe as well as the narrow South West Coast Path around Baggy Point. Over the miles you are bound to experience wind, salt, sand, sheep, gorse, wild flowers and stone walls: a natural playground for trail runners. Whilst clean, safe and easily accessible, this route provides runners with a closeness to nature - the power of the crashing Atlantic surf, the soft golden sand, and beyond the majestic covered headlands with their exposed jagged cliffs adding to the feeling of wildness. The past has left its mark in many ways and is visible as you run around. A large whale bone, one of the last remaining coastguard training poles, stone-faced banks built using local slates and Second World War pill boxes. Often in view is Lundy, sitting solitary and beckoning on the horizon, forming the backdrop for year-round dramatic sunsets and a natural focus for all the wide sea views.
