After a year in the wilderness (thanks, Covid!), we’ll all be ready for Something Wild this summer and our family-friendly trail running festival will be the best one yet.
The trail marathon is our blue riband event and kicks off our festival on Saturday 31st July, at 8.30am.
Starting and finishing at the festival site at Huccaby, it crosses the fulcrum of Dartmoor where east and west rivers meet at Dartmeet and completes a circuit of Bellever woods via Yartor, Babeny and Sherwell Farm. From here you will head east along Dr Blackalls Drive, crossing the river for a second time at New Bridge following a bone-jarring descent and heading into Holne Woods, then on into Hembury Woods, skirting the brook before ascending the steep climb up Pupers Hill via Scorriton.
The total ascent is 1325m (4347 feet).
Sign up for our marathon, on some of Dartmoor’s best trails.
