Dartmoor 3-In-One
Brentor, South West, United Kingdom

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.

Eden Project Marathon
Par, South West, United Kingdom

Cornwalls biggest running event, the Eden Marathon and Half Marathon returns 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

Cornish Marathon
Pensilva, South West, United Kingdom

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.
