The Devon Trail races return for 2024 and take in some of the very best paths on Woodbury Common.
The 10K is single-loop course with some cracking trails, some tough little climbs and even a couple of stream crossings.
The start and registration are in the stunning grounds of Bicton College.
The half marathon is mainly two laps of the same course but with an extra trail section that means you don’t have to return to Bicton between laps.
The 5K cuts out a big section on the common and is about 3K on quiet lanes but still includes trails and a couple of river crossings. These events are ideal for runners of all abilities. There are also canicross categories.
This event is part of Devon Trail Races.
Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:
For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees
New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.
Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.
Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.
Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.
At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
Fab event - loved it.... thanks for going to such effort to run a brilliant race, the marshalls were awesome! Lucy Poole
