About the event

The 8th Something Wild Festival 2022 has Devon's best trail running routes at its heart, a wonderful new venue and new routes, taking in the Avon and Salcombe estuaries and some of the best sections of the South West Coast Path

We have changed our venue for the Something Wild Festival and have found the perfect spot, with the camping site, at the fulcrum of the race routes, overlooking the stunning Hope Cove.

Make this a summer to remember and bring your family.

This year, we are kicking off the festival with a Friday night race, which will be followed by a BBQ and bar.

The Festival site

The farmer has Kindly given access to his fields, overlooking the idyllic Hope Cove, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better location to wake up to in the south west. close to ideal swimming spots in Hope Cove, East Soar and Bantham Bay.

The campsite is suitable for up to 50 tents, parking and camper vans, as well as and serving as the fulcrum for all our trail events, which is ideal for spectators. If you want to park at the campsite, tickets cost £5 for the whole weekend.

We'll be offering extra toilet facilities, as well as a festival tent for our speaker's and comedy evening.

We have lined up some of the best coast routes on the South West Coast path for our night run, 5k, 10k or half marathon, marathon and Summit Wild Ultra as well as kid's races.

We will kick off the festival with a night time run on Friday before the half marathon, marathon and ultra on Saturday and the 10k and 5k events on Sunday. 

On the Saturday evening, there will be a comedy night in the main venue, involving top Welsh comedian Noel James.
