DURING the Easter weekend Nathan Newton, of Tavistock, took part in the 117 mile Devon Coast to Coast Ultra marathon run by Climb South West. 

Starting in Wembury it follows the 17 mile Erme-Plym trail to Ivybridge where it meets the Two Moors Way, a 100-mile waymarked trail from the South of Dartmoor to the North of Exmoor where it meets the sea in Lynmouth. 

Nathan managed to complete this 117 mile challenge in just under 34 hours. He started on Saturday morning and did not rest until he finished on Sunday evening, meaning he kept going right through the night.
