The ACC in Pictures

The Atlantic Coast Challenge – known colloquially as the ACC – pits runners against some of the toughest coastal trail routes in England. Over three days the foolhardy and just plain foolish tackle a marathon a day to run, walk and crawl from Mackerel Cove, a few miles west of Padstow, to Land’s End where glory and a hot Cornish pasty await. Ahead of RunningMonkey’s main race report we thought a few of the highlight pictures from the ACC might me in order…

Don’t be fooled, little of the ACC is this flat.

Each day has anything up to a mile of vertical climb.

If rocks, trails, dunes and steps aren’t enough the ACC has miles of beach to cover too.
