What you need to know about Marathon Running

The marathon is the benchmark for any runner. Its history stretches back to the Ancient Greeks, and it now includes all the world’s most iconic running races. At 26.2 miles, it’s a massive test of physical and mental resilience. If it’s a PB you’re after, you can choose a fast, flat city course, or else go for a more challenging trail run in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

Think a marathon might be pushing it? Why not ease yourself in with a 5k or 10k run instead?

The Two Moors Ultra Marathon Exmoor to Dartmoor:
This epic Two Moors Ultra Exmoor to Dartmoor passes through classically Devon countryside, starting in Lynmouth and finishing in Ivybridge. You will run through the night and anyone who finishes inside 24 hours will receive a special prize!

This is a very challenging self navigation ultra, crossing two national parks: Exmoor in the north of Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor National Park, following the recently relaunched Two Moors Way. Despite the minimal ascent, only experienced ultra runners or participants with good navigation skills will be accepted. Even in September, good weather can not be assured and parts of the route can become boggy. We think you will wonder why you have never done this before.

Castle 2 Coast:
Dont be fooled, this is no baby ultra! Its a fully fledged Dartmoor Crossing, following the Two Moors Way, which will require self navigation skills.

Lynmouth Marathon:
This follows the Two Moors Way from Lynmouth seafront to the village of Knowstone in Mid Devon. Along the way you will cross Exmoor and Mid Devon on the original Two Moors Way and will probably wonder why youve never done this before!

Drogo Ultra (35 miles):
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September but finishes in Ivybrdge instead of Wembury.

Castle Drogo Half Marathon:
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September

Exmoor to Drogo (60 miles):
Starts alongside the TMU on Saturday September 29th and ends at Drogo Castle. Camping and parking is provided.

Welcome to the Glencoe Marathon Gathering, featuring the full 26.2 mile Glencoe Marathon, the Mamores Half Marathon and the Glen Nevis 10K.

The off-road marathon is an epic trail run that ascends a total of 1,608 metres through the heart of Glencoe and into the foothills of Ben Nevis.

The route snakes through the pass of Glencoe, surrounded by the towering remains of this ancient super volcano, before climbing 500 metres up the fearsome Devils Staircase. From the eastern edge of the Aonach Eagach Ridge you look straight onto the mighty Buachaille Etive Mor (the great herdsman) before dropping back to sea level at Kinlochleven where the Mamores Half Marathon starts. Climbing up through the Mamores the route undulates until the descent into Glen Nevis and the base of the mighty Ben Nevis, the UKs highest peak.

The Glencoe Marathon Gathering is organised by WildFox Events, Scotland's original adventure challenge company. Over the past fifteen years Wildfox Events has have offered participants an unrivalled experience and a range of events in some of the most stunning parts of the UK.

The MRF is incorporated into the Murgon Rail Trail Festival and offers events for walkers and runners of 5km, 10km, half marathon and full marathon in addition to 6 hour and 12 hour events (with team options).

The route takes participants along the Kingaroy to Kilkivan Rail Trail, along out and back routes starting at the Murgon trail head. The section has a bitumen cover and offers a superb running surface for both running and walking while retaining the benefits of a typical trail environment. It's flat by no means and will be very fast for some while others can simply take their time and soak up the atmosphere.
