The Big Dipper

The race follows the South West Coast Path from Sidmouth to Beer and returns via an extremely torturous section of the trail.

It’s not easy. It’s a serious challenge. The Dipper goes up, then it goes down, then it goes up again.

It’s 16 long vertiginous coastal miles including a spectacularly flat pebbled beach section.
