The Hope Trail Runs, organised by Wild Running Events, are part of the South West Outdoors Festival 2018 based at East Soar Farm near Salcombe, where all the trail events will start and finish. They incorporate some of the most breathtaking views of the South West Coast Path from Salcombe to Hope Cove.

They include:

5k (Short Sharp Shock) 804 ft
10k (Glass Half Full) 1,374 ft
Half marathon (Here to Hope) 2,440 ft ascent.
There are NO cut off times for any of these events.

The Half Marathon follows the coast path down to North Sands beach and then inland to Collaton via Hangar Mill, then on past Rew Farm to West Cliff, where it picks up the SW Coast Path north to Inner Hope and then back via Bolberry.

The 10k heads down to South Sands and back to east Soar farm via Rew Farm and The Warren, while the 5k takes a shortened version skirting around Fir Woods.

Starting and finishing in the Moorland village of Peter Tavy and nestled below the wild Tors of West of Dartmoor. The Dartmoor 3 in ONE offers 3 races of 3 distances, all in ONE day. 22.25 miles in total.

All races start and finish from Peter Tavy Village Hall with a mass start for each race. You have to finish the first to be on the start line for the second. How much time you have to recover between races is down to the individual. Do you go all out and rest, or pace it out and go for negative splits? Its up to you

Start times are generous to a degree but the cumulative effect of 3 race starts in 5 hours is certain to have an effect on performance. Its a long race broken into 3 faster, shorter events. In itself, this is a new concept and we think its going to be a real test of endurance and tenacity to be the pureTrail Dartmoor 3 in ONE overall winner.

Cornwalls biggest running event, the Eden Marathon and Half Marathon returns on 15 October 2017, with a multi-terrain route through spectacular countryside.

A firm fixture in the running calendar, the Eden Project Marathon and Half Marathon offers hilly multi-terrain courses around the famous site, following a challenging route through areas of spectacular mining heritage and beautiful countryside landscapes.

We created the course through Cornwall's dramatic Clay Country not only to offer a unique sporting experience for runners nationwide, but to showcase the unique region on our doorstep. The idea came from a conversation with the local St Austell Running Club, whose commitment, enthusiasm and passion have been invaluable in putting on the event.

The Marathon is just one of the many ways Eden aims to act as a catalyst for economic growth in the local region. If we could build this place, in a former clay pit, surely together we can all take on even bigger challenges

The Cornish Marathon is Cornwall's only all road marathon. It began in 1984 and originally started out from Saltash following the A38 and A390 to Lostwithiel. It started out as a wager between two organisers John Foster and Stephen Henderson that one could run faster than the other. Despite being run for charity, only 27 runners took the plunge, the winner managing 2.29 minutes and 15 secs, something to make all race winners this millenium envious. 78 runners turned out the next year and in 1987 it was handed over to East Cornwall Harriers.

Relocating to Rilla Mill in 1994, taking in much of the present route, it presented competitors with 3 miles of steady climbing from the gun. Finally changing to Pensilva, it starts from Millenium House, a much gentler introduction to the scenic circular out and back route which takes runners along the Draynes Valley, through the 'Poldark' country of Bodmin Moor, past King Arthur's legendary Dozmary Pool, Du Maurier's Jamaica Inn at Bolventor and back along the Fowey Valley, taking in a climb to Foredown between miles 24 and 25, which most runners will remember for a long time, and not just for the fabulous views !
