SWCP Challenge 2017 logo 

Plymouth Coastal Runners (PCR) host a free monthly Time Trial (TT) series the last weekend of every month with 4 distances: TT1 (6.5km), TT2 (10.0km), TT3 (16.0km) or ‘The Triple’ (TT3, then TT2, then TT1 consecutively, a total of 33km). After the TT has finished results are added to the leaderboard.

For October only, as part of the South West Coast Path (SWCP) Challenge, rather than just the last weekend you have the whole of the month (1st-31st October) to run the routes as many times as you want with your fastest time for each segment being used in the final results. However, for your time to be counted on the leaderboard, you need to pay the entrance fee, of £21.83. In return for your entrance fee you get a piece of customised PCR multifunctional headwear, a t-shirt and contribute a minimum of £10 to the SWCP.

How does it work?

After you have signed up for the event you need an account on Strava (https://www.strava.com/) if you don’t already have one. You can either use a GPS watch or the Strava app to record your run on any of the routes below. Take part whenever you like, day or night. Run, Walk, Crawl... Whatever you fancy. The whole family, dogs and any other pets that you fancy taking out are invited!

Once you have finished share your time with the PCR page on Facebook (Link below). Repeat as many times as you wish during the month, your best time for each route will be counted towards the leaderboard. https://www.facebook.com/groups/plymouthcoastalrunners/

Routes:

For all routes start and stop your watch / phone in Jennycliff car park, Strava will record your time for the segment.

The routes follow the coast path but you need to turn around at the correct point for the segment to register.

TT1: 6.5km - Bovisand
Turn around point: The gap in the stone wall by the bench at the base of the tarmac hill from the holiday park, run through it and straight back.

TT2: 10.0km - Heybrook Bay

Turn around point: Run over the bridge, touch the wall in front of you and run straight back.

TT3: 16.0km - Wembury

Turn around point: Top of the steps (toilets on the left), turn left, along the road until you come across a wooden gate on the left, go through it and keep left until you get back to the beach (by the kayaks) then back the way you came.

The Triple: 33.0km

Start with TT3, then run TT2 and TT1, turning a few steps after the 'Welcome to the SWCP' stone in the floor. Keep your watch / phone recording for the duration.

It is planned to put signs up at the turn around points to make it easier to follow.

THIS IS A SOCIAL EVENT AND NOT A RACE. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO LOOK AFTER YOUR OWN SAFETY, NOT THE ORGANISER OR PCR.

FOR A TT ATTEMPT TO BE ADDED TO THE LEADERBOARD IT MUST REGISTER AS THE SEGMENT ON STRAVA. ATTEMPTS WHICH DO NOT REGISTER AS A SEGMENT DUE TO NAVIGATIONAL OR GPS ERRORS WILL NOT BE ADDED TO THE LEADERBOARD

Have fun, be careful and considerate of other users of the path! Feel free to share the event to get as many people as possible involved.

For any loon that loves running on the coastpaths around Plymout...h... any distance, day or night! Add anyone you like! Any time you fancy a run post details of start time and location and hopefully someone comes and joins you!!! No affiliation or anything just a bunch of like minded nutters! You run on the coastpath at your own risk... this group holds no insurance etc... it's a bit of fun to get more people running on the coast.
