Deep River Trail Races routes
The trails go deep and steep. Down to the depths of the Teign River valley, then rising above the Fingle treeline. Two extremely tough Woodland Trail Races.
Follow the red lines and arrows crossing the iron bridge over the River Teign to the aid station at Fingle Bridge. The blue lines and arrows are the route to the finish after crossing Fingle Bridge, with some technical sections before turning right for home.
Peanuts, jaffa cakes, jellied sweets and water provided at mile 3 aid station at Fingle Bridge.
Total ascent: 289m.
Follow the red lines and arrows to the aid station at Fingle Bridge and turn up onto a long hill before turning left and keeping high in the woods until a sharp left turn takes you down to the river. The longest climb is next, from the River Teign up to the highest point of the course and to the second aid station at Hillfort carpark (mile 7.5). Now for the longest descent, back down to the river. Mile 9 sees the steepest climb of the day back to a crossroads. From here, the blue lines and arrows show the way to the finish and you repeat a section completed earlier in the race, but you benefit again with another long down and along the river to Fingle Bridge aid station at mile 11. Crossing over the bridge to follow the river, with some technical trails before turning right and back up to the finish.
Features a whopping 871m ascent, but 7 miles have a positive ascent and the other 7 have more descent than ascent. Plenty of tough hills but the benefit comes with an equal downhill.
Aid station at Fingle Bridge at mile 3 gives peanuts, biscuits, jellied sweets, water, coke etc. More will be available at mile 7.5 (Hillfort car park), and at mile 11 back at Fingle Bridge for the final leg.
