With great success from lasts year inaugural Dark Peaks 30 Ultra Trail, and some fantastic feedback from competitors.
Being described by the elite field of runners as one of the best but hardest 30 mile ultras they have ever raced and truly a classic in the making. We where excited to bring this event back!!!

Starting from the village of Hope, This Ultra will take you into the heart of the Peak District national park, where the total elevation will be well over 7000ft!!

Starting off on the iconic Pennine way you will soon be greeted with some brutal climbs, high ridge lines and fast technical descending, with the time of year and the nature of this course this one will surely push you to your limits!!

The Two Moors Ultra Marathon Exmoor to Dartmoor:
This epic Two Moors Ultra Exmoor to Dartmoor passes through classically Devon countryside, starting in Lynmouth and finishing in Ivybridge. You will run through the night and anyone who finishes inside 24 hours will receive a special prize!

This is a very challenging self navigation ultra, crossing two national parks: Exmoor in the north of Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor National Park, following the recently relaunched Two Moors Way. Despite the minimal ascent, only experienced ultra runners or participants with good navigation skills will be accepted. Even in September, good weather can not be assured and parts of the route can become boggy. We think you will wonder why you have never done this before.

Castle 2 Coast:
Dont be fooled, this is no baby ultra! Its a fully fledged Dartmoor Crossing, following the Two Moors Way, which will require self navigation skills.

Lynmouth Marathon:
This follows the Two Moors Way from Lynmouth seafront to the village of Knowstone in Mid Devon. Along the way you will cross Exmoor and Mid Devon on the original Two Moors Way and will probably wonder why youve never done this before!

Drogo Ultra (35 miles):
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September but finishes in Ivybrdge instead of Wembury.

Castle Drogo Half Marathon:
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September

Exmoor to Drogo (60 miles):
Starts alongside the TMU on Saturday September 29th and ends at Drogo Castle. Camping and parking is provided.

A double marathon through the heart of the idyllic Cotswolds
Unrelentingly beautiful. Unforgettably challenging.
