Trust10 run at Coleton Fishacre

Runners in the English Riviera countryside

The Trust10 is a free monthly 10km trail run that gives you the opportunity to explore Coleton Fishacre and the surrounding South West Coast Path on the fourth Sunday of every month. The run route gives fantastic coastal views all the way across Lyme Bay to Portland as well as access to the exotic garden at Coleton Fishacre.

The basics

Registration is from 8.30am at Coleton Fishacre car park and the run starts at 9am. The Trust10 is aimed as a step up from Parkrun and is self-led, following way markers along the route. The views from this great off-road route are fantastic, however you have to work for your reward as the route has a number of steep ascents and descents throughout, which will get the heart pumping.

For those who feel the 10km is too far do not panic as the route is two 5km loops, so there's nothing to stop you finishing after one loop. We’re working on offering a timing system, but at the moment we don’t have one in place; if your time is important to you please remember to bring your own timing device.

The route starts at Coleton Fishacre house and goes straight up the drive before turning right. Here you drop down to the coast path at Scabbacombe Head, which has breath taking views across Lyme Bay (sometimes you can even see Portland on a clear day). Then turn right again and follow the coast path back towards Coleton Fishacre, with open views across Start Bay to Start Point until you reach the bottom of Coleton Fishare garden. Here you turn right again and follow the route back to the house.
