PureTrail Running
PureTrail Running

pureTRAIL running events have been created by two experienced, passionate, South Devon based Trail and Ultra Distance runners, located on the southern fringes of Dartmoor. We believe that roads are for cars, not runners, so we keep road use to an absolute minimum in our attempt to create the ultimate Trail running experience. We believe that the events should be for runners, not organisers, so we spend our time meticulously planning the routes, and organising simple, pleasurable races over Southern Britain’s last wild place, Dartmoor.

We aim to bring experienced and novice Trail runners into the natural Dartmoor environment by offering Trail races varying in distances of between 10 and 100 miles. From the short, sharp, explosive ‘Volcano Race’ of 10 ‘Moorish’ miles with nearly 1800ft of climb, to the Ultra Trail of Dartmoor.. the Dartmoor 100′, a circumnavigation of Dartmoor. The Ultimate test of endurance in Southern England.

The Idea

Simplicity is our concept. To get runners off the road and onto the Trails. To explore, to experience, to empower and to have fun with running through nature.

To begin our journey, every Wednesday evening we guide runners of all abilities around the Tracks and Trails of Southern Dartmoor and surrounding areas. We have created the PureTrail Running Group. Our first run was from Haytor in April 2015 and people arrived from almost 30 miles away. We are now attracting a growing number of runners each with between 10 and 27 in recent weeks. Everyone is welcome, the guided runs are free of charge. Just bring enthusiasm, a sense of adventure and your trail shoes. Since we started Wednesday night runs we have only missed a handful of evenings in 4 years. It’s now time to ditch the head torches again as the nights get lighter…….hooray! See Wednesday Night Runs section on the Menu bar for our weekly location.

The Logic

Roads are for cars. Too hard, too unforgiving and too repetitive…
