Located off the coast of Devon, Lundy Island is 5KM from tip to tip, and so it seemed the perfect virtual location for our first 5KM event. We also have a 10km event for the full out and back of Lundy.


Lundy has a rich bird life, as it lies on major migration routes, and attracts many vagrant as well as indigenous species. It also boasts a variety of marine habitats, with rare seaweeds, sponges and corals. In 2010, the island became Britain's first Marine Conservation Zone.

It is probably most well known for its Puffin population which can be seen  at their colonies from late April to August, but June and July are the best months to see them as at this time they are busy feeding their single chick.
