Your organiser

pureTRAIL running events have been created by two experienced, passionate, South Devon based Trail and Ultra Distance runners, located on the southern fringes of Dartmoor. We believe that roads are for cars, not runners, so we keep road use to an absolute minimum in our attempt to create the ultimate Trail running experience. We believe that the events should be for runners, not organisers, so we spend our time meticulously planning the routes, and organising simple, pleasurable races over Southern Britain’s last wild place, Dartmoor. We aim to bring experienced and novice Trail runners into the natural Dartmoor environment by offering Trail races varying in distances of between 10 and 100 miles. From the short, sharp, explosive ‘Volcano Race’ of 10 ‘Moorish’ miles with nearly 1800ft of climb, to the Ultra Trail of Dartmoor.. the Dartmoor 100′, a circumnavigation of Dartmoor. The Ultimate test of endurance in Southern England.

Route description
Route description

The 51 mile route through Somerset will take participants along a trail route inspired by Samuel Coleridge, philosopher, theologian, and founder of the 'romantic poet' movement.

Starting in Nether Stowey in North-West Somerset, home to Coleridge for many years, the route follows across the moorlands and through woods which were often covered in opium, seen as both aiding Coleridge's work and causing his demise.

Runners will trail around the Quantock Hills, and the stunning routes in Exmoor, before heading along the Lyn Valley Gorge to Lynmouth.

The whole route will be way-marked and signed to ensure it is easily navigable and runners can focus on the beauty of the route not staying on track.
