Seaview 17 



Dear Runner,

It is with great regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the Seaview again for this year.

Because we use busses to get you to the start, there is a concern that we may well still be under Social distancing restrictions on public transport. The event isn't viable with the busses only being half full and we can't afford to run more busses. Also the very nature of the event means that a mass start is inevitable.

The Trail Running Association are also still only offering licences with Covid 19 restrictions in place, which simply aren't possible to impliment for the Seaview.

Wishing all of our running friends the very best and hope you can all still manage to get out and do some running.

Stay Safe

Minehead Running Club

19th March 2021

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 £14,000 for local causes. Our Charity for 2020 will be

Charlie's Challenge for The Somerset Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.


Due to the huge demand in the past, we have again booked 3 coaches for the 2020 event - so enter early.


Entries are strictly limited to 150 on the buses. We can accept a further 20 entries, but you will have to make your own way to the start.


10.00am start from behind the Church, reached from The Blue Ball Inn Car Park, Countisbury Hill, Lynton, Devon.


Buses leave Minehead Hospital car park, off Seaward Way, Minehead, Somerset at 9.00 am.


Entry Fees: Affiliated Club Runners £15.50. Unaffiliated Runners £17.50. All plus online entry charge (This includes bus to the start for pre-booked runners).


NO PRIZES, T-SHIRTS, MUGS etc. Just a great run and free refreshments.

Bring your own water container/cup. We will provide water and sweets/bananas at the 4 stations, but NO cups supplied.
