Route description
Route description

The Exmoor 10K, half marathon, marathon and ultra marathon courses encompass stiff climbs and long descents, open moorland, thickly wooded combes (valleys), historical ruins, dizzying cliffs, exquisitely beautiful rivers and a stretch of coastline that is unsurpassed. We are confident that there is no course in Britain that offers such a variety of terrain within such a compact area. This truly is trail running territory at its best, and is widely regarded as the toughest course in Endurance Life's Trail Running Series.

Route Statistics:

10K: 1,250ft Ascent

Half Marathon: 2,858ft Ascent

Marathon: 6,102ft Ascent

Ultra: 7,608ft Ascent
