Are you up for an event with a difference?  Families in Grief (FiG) and The Wave Project - two local North Devon charities - have joined forces to bring you an exciting new event – 'Barney to Beach 2024'.  Starting in Barnstaple Pannier Market, the route will take you through a variety of terrains - mostly flat - along the Tarka trail with some spectacular North Devon views along the way. We then finish through the dunes and onto the beach at Crow Point. What a journey!  

View our video and be inspired - with thanks to business sponsor Letterfest for making this possible

And the children?
There will be a mile-long run through the dunes and beach around Crow Point. Ages 4 to 16 are welcome.
