South West Coast 50 Ultra Challenge 2024

The South West Coast 50 Ultra Challenge will take place on Saturday, 3rd August and we are delighted to have Alba’s Auntie Kath leading the Reverse Rett South Westers inspired by her beautiful niece.

The Full 50 km loop challenge has over 1600m of climb, starts from basecamp beneath Dunster Castle, and heads to the coast and the official Minehead start of the famous 630 mile South West Coastal Path.

The coastal path provides fantastic views across the Bristol Channel towards South Wales in the distance. The historic village of Porlock marks the half way point – then it’s through forests and in to the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Across moorland and a climb up Dunkery Beacon – Exmoor’s highest point – with amazing panoramic views, before descending towards Minehead and on back to the finish line on the lawns below Dunster basecamp where a very welcome finish line celebration awaits.

With ‘half (25 km) options available, weekend camping packages at our basecamp, a family friendly 10K event, a bar, BBQ, music & entertainment – there’s a summer festival feel on this challenge!
