Exmoor National Park is one of England's best kept secrets, and this stage takes place in the lesser known western area of the National Park where a trail runner's mecca lies. The course encompasses stiff climbs and long descents, open moorland, thickly wooded combes (valleys), historical ruins, dizzying cliffs, exquisitly 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. The Exmoor course is widely regarded as the toughest course in The Series and is definitely a grueling test of endurance for even the very hardest trail and fell runners.

    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!
