Challenge yourself to Minehead Running Club’s unique Seaview 17 - This is a tough run along the South West Coast path from Countisbury to Minehead (about 21 miles). Some of the route is marked and marshalled, but the onus is on you to find your own way.
This is one of the most beautiful (and hilly) stretches of Coast Path in the country.

The modest entry fee includes a scenic bus ride from Minehead to Countisbury (some people say that this is worth the entry fee on its own). Once you have found your way back to Minehead - enjoy a shower and the legendary, lovely FREE refreshments.
Conceived by MRC as a unique challenge and charity fundraiser in 2005 this event has so far raised over £16,000 for local causes. Our Charity for 2022 will be 'Poppins' a Minehead Community Interest Company,
Due to the huge demand in the past, we have again booked 3 coaches for the 2022event - so enter early.
