coast to cathedral on the West Mendip Way
This event is run under an ARC permit

Recommended Kit

Teams are responsible for the safety of their runners and are reminded to take kit suitable for the weather conditions on the day, such as:
  • windproof whole body cover
  • map print here and compass
  • whistle
  • mobile phone

Which should all fit neatly into a small bum-bag that can be worn around the waist without much hassle. We suggest that each team make up one kit bag that can be passed between runners. The baton is a coloured streamer that can be attached to your bag.

You can print a map with directions for any leg of the route from here.

Relay Rules

The race is run as a 'hand-over' relay with teams passing a baton between a series of up to six runners.

Teams may only exchange their baton at the end of each leg, as detailed on the route maps.

Team runners must carry the baton supplied by the event. Solo runners are not required to carry a baton.


The race follows the West Mendip Way except for two diversions on leg six.
