Route information
The longest day will be the start of the TSUNAMI 24, the longest and toughest race to date with 75 miles, 5,270m of ascent, and 24 hours max. TSUNAMI 24 starts on Friday night, the longest day of the year, and finishes at Castle Bude on Saturday.
On Saturday, the iconic Clovelly Harbour will start the marathon –  uphill on the cobblestones through the village to reach the Coast Path, to finish on the lawns of Castle Bude, taking in almost 2,000m of ascent along the route.
The Ultra adds another 10 miles of serious fun, the 16 mile race includes the toughest, most vertiginous section from Hartland Quay onwards, with the 7.5 mile race giving a short sharp introduction to the coastal hills, starting from the village of Morwenstow.
These races are undoubtedly some of the toughest trail running challenges in the South West. Due to the nature of the terrain, wild and isolated (no towns or villages along the route), they will also prove to be the most rewarding.
What's included
  • Finisher's Medal
  • Fully marked and marshalled route
  • Well-stocked checkpoints
  • First aid
  • TSUNAMI 24 and Ultra finishers receive 5 and 3 ITRA points respectively.

pureTRAIL
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.

I'm a little nervous that I will lose the trail, will the Tsunami Ocean Trails be well marked?
Yes, coloured markers will be set up all the way along the route. Especially after intersections, there will be signage posted to ensure that runners stay on the right track. South West Coast Path acorn symbols will also help guide you through the race. You should not have to look too far ahead to see the marked route.

Are there bus transports available at the Tsunami Ocean Trails?
Yes, there are bus transports for varying prices for all the races except the Tsunami 24.

Is there a certain time you have to finish within? I’ve never ran a marathon before but have been doing 10kms in lockdown below 50 mins. Just a little concerned I may not be fast enough? Thanks :)
