Bringing you to your knees over 8.5 hilly miles


The Combe Crawler is our (already) legendary race that's guaranteed to tax the muscles of even the most race-hardened veteran. It is a true cross-country race that encompasses steep coastal paths, stunning views and beautiful countryside running through dramatic North Devon scenery.

This race is held in the middle of November every year, and has proven to be a fun yet challenging competition for everyone who has entered, no matter their experience and ability.




The Crawler returned in 2021 after a plague enforced break and showed just why it is everyone's favourite race. Streets lined with joyous spectators (armed with bells, kazoos and vuvuzelas) cheering on the brave participants? Check. Compromised member of the clergy overseeing the proceedings on Hillsborough? Check. Medals better than those awarded at the Olympics? Check. Hills, hills and more hills? Check, check and check.
