The Grizzly 23: ''I FOUGHT THE CLAW"

This is an iconic multi-terrain running event that is now in its 35th year of running.

The Grizzly will take place on Sunday at 1030am with the Junior Griz Fest races on Saturday at 2pm.

The weekend

This race is organised by a committee of volunteer members of Axe Valley Runners & the route includes pebble beaches, deep bogs & lots of hills. There is the 20-mile full Grizzly race and the shorter 9 mile Cub race to choose from.

Both races start at 1030am on Seaton Esplanade and follow the same route through Beer, before the Cub Runners double back along the beach at Branscombe Mouth & return to Seaton. 

The full Grizzly runners continue from Branscombe Mouth up into Branscombe and the surrounding area, before returning to Seaton via Branscombe Mouth and Beer.

There are also several bands positioned around the course to add to the party atmosphere.

Through organising the Grizzly, Axe Valley Runners have been able to raise thousands of pounds for local, national and international charities with donations since 1988 of almost £500k.
