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.

Half Marathon: 2,858ft Ascent

Marathon: 6,102ft Ascent

Ultra: 7,608ft Ascent

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Awesome course challenging course with stunning views and a cool atmosphere . Highly recommend this race
  • Did the Marathon in 2017

    Really stunning and super hard course. If there's any rain pre event this is definitely a course for trail shoes - I had trainers on and lots of slipping around the place. Definitely walk up the big inclines and study the course profile before hands. There are a few bits - especially towards the end - that you can get into a good rhythm of running but a lot in the first 2/3rds that's just rolling up and down. Make sure you preserve your legs on the downhills - very easy to blow your knees out!
