The race starts at the Foxes Hole Car Park on the Exmouth Sea Front at 9:45am and follows the South West Coast Path for 20 miles or so and finishes at the Esplanade at Seaton. This is the 17th year of the race. In 2004 the race started from Seaton and finished in Exmouth, but since 2005 it has started in from Exmouth. Originally the distance was just over 20 miles, but a landslip in June 2012 on the outskirts of Seaton has led to a detour which means the distance is now nearer 22 miles. The race has been renamed JP’s Exe to Axe in memory of John Perratt, founding member and longterm Treasurer of Sidmouth Running Club, and a huge contributor to the sport throughout East Devon.
