This is the ultimate trail run with open moorlands, heavily wooded valleys and coastal paths, everything you could wish for whilst out running in the wild. The ultra was voted in the hardest ultra runs in the country, but it is definitely worth it!

Set in the stunning hidden valley of Doona Valley at Cloud Farm Campsite, this event must make your bucket list. This route includes the sharpest coastal hill climb in the country followed by the longest stretch of wooded coast line in the country. Starting out not far from the beautiful unspoilt towns and villages of Lynton, Lynmouth, Portlock and Minehead this is a challenging yet beautiful course.

This fantastic route, coupled with the stunning start/finish venue of Cloud Farm makes for one of the most exciting events of the series so far.

Cannicross friendly- please remember to take your dog’s training as seriously as your own.

We also use striped tape, these are placed after any split to reassure you that you are on the correct trail. We also use them along long stretches where no turn off is required or directional arrows needed.

For some of our events we provide maps of the route at the start of the event. You must keep these maps on you at all times, as a back up to be referred to if needed.
