Walking Route: 

 

There are two stunningly beautiful routes of 6.5 and 13.1 miles. Maps and written instructions will be provided on the day, the route will be well sign-posted and there will be marshals in key locations.


6.5 mile route: 

Our walkers will exit Queen’s Drive Space, turn right and walk along the sea front. Around the marina & through the Imperial Recreation ground, past the Exmouth Rugby Club, along Marine Way, through Carter Avenue Park before taking a left onto Mudbank Lane until you reach the Exe estuary cycle path. Follow along until you reach the National Trust footpath which will take you onto Exeter Road. Turn right and walk until you reach the public footpath (right before the Shell garage) which takes you onto Halsdon Avenue. Follow this road until it becomes Southern Rd, Exmouth Town Football Club and re-joins Marine Way. Walk down Marine way until you get to the subway which will take you under the road and over towards the Strand. Go through the Strand and into Manor Gardens where you will take a left cross at the zebra crossing and make your way back to the seafront by following the walking paths that go behind the Premier Inn and head back to Queens Drive Space via the seafront. 

 

13.1 Mile Route

Our walkers will exit Queens Drive Space through the Maer, up Foxholes Hill, where you join the SW coastal path taking them down the zig zag path, all the way along the sea front. Around the marina & through the Imperial Recreation ground, past the Exmouth Rugby Club, down along Marine Way, through Carter Avenue Park before taking a left onto Mudbank Lane until you reach the Exe estuary cycle path.  Follow the path down through Lympstone all the way until you reach the Puffing Billy in Exton.

Walkers will then head back along the picturesque cycle path as the sun is going down, through Lympstone until you reach the National Trust footpath. Follow the footpath until you reach Exeter Road, take a right and walk until you reach the public footpath (right before the Shell garage) which takes you onto Halsdon Avenue. Follow this road until it becomes Southern Rd, Exmouth Town Football Club and re-joins Marine Way. Walk down Marine way until you get to the subway which will take you under the road and over towards the Strand. Go through the Strand and into Manor Gardens where you will take a left cross at the zebra crossing and make your way back to the seafront by following the walking paths that go behind the Premiere Inn and head back to Queens Drive Space via the seafront.

Who makes the evening happen?

This event simply wouldn’t happen if it weren’t for the brilliant support of our army of volunteers who give up their time to help on the evening!

One for the boys - don’t let your men feel left out. If your partner, brother or Dad would like to support the event we are looking for over 50+ marshals to help on the day!
