26.2 challenging miles across the glorious West Pennines, taking in the Iconic Darwen Tower!

The route will take you on a journey across the Darwen Moor towards the Rivington, stopping short, the route changes direction and takes you to the Peel Tower and over Holcombe Moor before running back to Darwen.

We absolutely believe this will be an event to remember, giving you panoramic views from the top of the moors, rugged terrain that will challenge you mentally and physically and to top it all off, you will be rewarded with some serious bling and tee for your hard efforts!

Plenty of water/fuel stations along the route and when it's all over, the Olde English Kiosk will be open for food and of course, there is a licenced bar there too!

Combine trail running and the magic of music in this inspirational 3-day trip into the best of the British countryside. With the outstanding beauty of The Gower Peninsula as your backdrop, you'll explore beaches, cliffs, coastal trails, ancient woodland and dunes on day & night-time guided runs.

Revel in the best trail running has to offer, while only four kilometres away from the festival site you can explore Rhossili Bay, officially named the UK's best beach. Guided trail runs from as short as 3km all the way up to 60km, with varied pace groups, means there is something for everyone and all abilities.

Get involved in the beer mile relay, the legendary pub crawl run, secret adventures, treasure hunts & wild swims, among other adrenaline-spiking activities like surfing before you ease off with some well deserved wellness activities; from outdoor yoga sessions through to an invigorating soak in the open air hot tubs.

At night, settle by the crackling fire of the Campfire Stage and listen to a host of inspirational talks from a carefully curated line-up of adventure athletes, explorers & thought leaders, then let go to the sound of live music and DJs as the sun falls and the stars come out.

A choice of two Summer runs starting and finishing at the YMCA Hawker Centre (Kingston), proceeding towards the Thames Path on an out and back flat and fast scenic riverside route that is very well marked and marshalled all the way along. Both the half marathon and the marathon courses are both at and fast so were expecting some great PBs.

The fourth staging of The Twilight Ultra takes place at the Redbridge Cycle Centre in East London after another successful year in 2017.

The secure, traffic-free, undulating, tarmac route sees runners covering laps of the cycle circuit and finishing on what will, hopefully, be a balmy summers evening.

With good parking and spectating facilities, the event features a choice of three distances with start times varying according to the distance you select. Aim high and select the ultra distance and you can always step down to a shorter distance.

Runners will be able to take advantage of well-stocked aid stations on each lap with the availability of hot and cold food and drink.

New for 2018, we have added a beast of a route. This is the toughest Inov-8 X Series route on our calendar, with over 2300m of elevation, it's 300m higher than the Inov-8 Snowdonia X Series event! That should give you some idea of the challenge that awaits you here in Devon.

We are sending you along part of The South West Coast Path which is England's longest waymarked long-distance footpath and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles (1,014 km), running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, to Poole Harbour in Dorset. Since it rises and falls with every river mouth, it is also one of the more challenging trails. The total height climbed has been calculated to be 114,931 ft (35,031 m), almost four times the height of Mount Everest

The route starts at Caffyns Farm and heads along the coast path at Lynton, you will be met with towering cliffs and stunning sea views across to South Wales. Soak up the stunning sounds of seabirds nesting on the cliffs. As you venture along the coast you will enter the valley of rocks, a superb section of coast path well know for its herds of feral goats. This section is among the oldest Devonian rocks in north Devon and is highly fossil ferrous.

As you continue on your way you will become lost in the splendour. We take you to Foreland Point, a rocky headland which is the most northerly point along the Devon and Exmoor coastline.

The route then sweeps back inland towards some special forested sections that make you feel like you're back in the heart of Devon. One stand out area is Watersmeet, we know you will be enchanted by this section of the route. There are many other hidden gems on the Exmoor X Series event, we dont want to spoil it too much for you, so come and join us! The outdoors awaits...

The course is a single lap, traffic free route on closed roads and cycle paths or redways as they are known locally. It combines the tree lined City Centre boulevards with many miles of leafy surrounding suburbs, lake & canal side redways. Crowd support in the town is fantastic & plenty of groups out on the more rural sections as well.

The course is gently undulating with a short hill at mile 24 and has PB potential, but you have to work hard to earn it. Stadium finish is great, you will feel like a hero covering the last mile as you head in towards the finish line and you will receive a cracking medal as well.
We offer a Big Marathon experience with lots of entertainment en route to help motivate you and to attract crowds of spectators to cheer you on. On the event day, you will receive a premium event experience.
