The 2nd Edition, a venture into the nocturnal. Almost. As a continuation of our 'Race The Tide' concept, we've decided to Race The Light and the Tide!

There's a chance you will be crossing the Erme estuary in the dark, but don't worry, it'll be lit up like a Christmas Tree.. Just in time for food and drinks to purchase at the Schoolhouse Devon, Mothecombe.

The race is an 8.5 mile escapade, meandering through Flete Estate's secret tracks and trails. You'll be crossing the estuary on the outward and return legs, so be prepared for wet feet and legs from the outset.

This is the 4th Edition of the Hameldown Hammer half-marathon - Devons biggest trail half marathon, and the 3rd Edition of the Hameldown 7EVEN - The Long 10k. The races start and finish in the village of Widecombe-In-The-Moor, at the foot of the Hameldown massif and surrounded by some of Dartmoors most iconic granite tors.

The Hameldown Hammer and 7EVEN rise high and steep. They afford spectacular views of the Moor and Tors, with some of the best trail running Dartmoor has to offer.

The shorter race, the Hameldown 7EVEN The Long 10k, has in excess of 300 metres of ascent and still includes a double ascent of the Hameldown ridge.

In the glorious private setting of the Flete Estate, Holbeton, Devon (PL81LW) we are hosting a Long marathon/Baby Ultra-Marathon distance race, its actually 29.5 miles. It involves 2 estuary crossings at Burgh Island and the Erme Estuary before finishing in the pretty village of Holbeton. This is the 2nd year of the races.

Courses are now designed so you can expect a lovely mix of private footpaths, coastal path, bridle paths, country fields and Woodland. However, the marathon incorporates the South West Coast Path on both sides of the estuary including a beach section at Bigbury-on-Sea and a run across the causeway to the privately owned Burgh Island.

On marked paths to the west of the island, we take you up to the top of the island, you descend and cross the causeway to continue the South West Coast Path further westwards climbing some awesome hills before racing the tide at Wonwell beach, across the estuary and running across Mothecombe beach. You then follow a circular route, continuing on the South West Coast Path for a few miles and on to the village to finish to pick up your well earned medal.

A Tidal Wave of Trail Running. The TSUNAMI series of trail races is due to hit the North Devon and Cornish coastline this summer.

Weve chosen the most rugged, wild and remote section of the North Devon and Cornish coastline for some extreme fun along the clifftops and cliff trails between Westward Ho! and Bude (Ultra-Marathon, 16 miles), Clovelly and Bude (Marathon), Hartland Quay and Bude (16 miles).

Weve procured the iconic Clovelly harbour for the start of the Marathonuphill on the cobblestones through the village to reach the Coast Path and finish on the lawns of Castle Bude taking in almost 2,000m of ascent along the route. Its a tidal wave of endurance trail running.

Weve all heard of it and most of us know where it is, roughly. But very few of us have run over it and nobody has ever raced on it.

This is what makes the Lundy Race the most unique Trail running experience we have created so far. Fourteen (ish) miles of pristine, wildlife encrusted tracks tended by the Landmark Trust are open for us to run, walk and crawl. Whichever way you do it, you will visit all 3 lighthouses traversing the undulating eastern and western clifftops, cling to the precipitous slopes and run along the central spine of the island (as well as a few side tracks). You will definitely discover this beautiful and rugged island in all its glorious entirety, on foot and at your own pace #thisiswhywerun.

Weve procured the MS Oldenburg to get you to the island ship-shape relaxed and ready to go. The boat will take 250 runners. So when it is full, so is the race (unless you travel on the scheduled service the day before and stay longer).
