Coast Ultra Xtreme Oct 9th to 13th
The Coast Ultra Xtreme is a new UK 5-day ultra-running challenge born out of the passionate team at VOTWO and an endurance coach and athlete. Disappointed at the cancellation and postponements of Marathon De Sables, UTMB and many more similar ultra-endurance we have created this new event at short notice alongside the Atlantic Coast Challenge so that athletes have the chance to channel all the training and hard work already done in preparation for a 5-day event.
The event is presented by MyRaceKit.com the UK’s leading ultra-running and adventure retailer and the spiritual home of multi-day racers.
The 2020 Coast Ultra Xtreme route starts near Padstow, passing Lands End and heading up and around the bottom of the Cornish Peninsula finishing in Coverack. Each of the first 3 days covers approximately 42-46km each, with day 4 approx. 60km and day 5 finishes with approximately 28km. The first 3 days run alongside Votwo's existing Atlantic Coast Challenge.
The event will be implementing a host of social distancing and other precautions for 2020.

Wild and rugged. Steep climbs and descents that test your concentration as well as your strength. Each day is unique with its own individual challenges and famous landmarks to add to the experience. The course follows the South West Coast path which is marked by the Acorn sign. It's a very obvious well-worn route. You will be issued with course maps and the emphasis is on self-navigation. In most cases, it's as easy as keeping the sea on your right and the land on your left.

Face masks and hand sanitization will be mandatory on all event transport and issued by the driver to participants.

All participants will be required to self certify a COVID health check prior to arrival at the event and certify both being clear of symptoms and not being required to self-isolate for any other reason such as having come into contact with persons suspect or infected with COVID.
We are currently assessing how the event catering will operate. The onsite restaurant normally provides good quality meals in the HQ area. This might change to a takeaway service with regards to COVID 19. More information will be published in the event participant information. Self-catering is certainly an option, a supermarket and other shops are located very close to the event HQ.
