A keen local runner, I have long wanted to create a loop of East Devon which could be run in a single days race. The 62 mile, East Devon Round was born. The race will be able to be run solo, in pairs, or teams of 4's or 6's. 

Working in agriculture, I am keen to raise the profile of local food producers and many local food producers have offered to donate prizes. Being based at Offwell village hall, bar proceeds over the weekend will go to the village hall, Offwell primary school will be providing cakes and some catering with profit to the primary school, and Combe Raleigh playgroup Little Critters will also be supplying cakes, with funds used to support its weekly playgroup. It is also likely that many of the runners will be raising funds for charity themselves. With a weekend of camping, local food, and a great race it is hoped both locals and visitors will be attracted to this race. 

I am currently self funding the race, and am setting up a website with a promotional video as we speak. It is unlikely I will cover costs in the first year of running, but would hope to do so in following years.
