Endurancelife Exmoor MarathonBerry's Ground Ln, Barnstaple EX31 4QT, UK

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.

  • 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!

  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    Nothing out of the ordinary for a coastal trail event. Course was more or less as expected. I keep going back-and-forth on whether I would've preferred to run in the other direction. The majority of the muddiest spots were towards the end when legs were quite wobbly already. Saw a few people slip and fall. Advice to future runners - shoes w/ excellent traction.
  • Did the Ultra in 2018

    All was great , location , organisation, route. Only problem we had was my super supporter wife couldn't get to all the recommended view points, roads inaccessible, no parking etc.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2017

    Stunning views of Gower peninsula, bit wet and wild but worth it!
