We’ve all heard of it and most of us know where it is, roughly. But very few of us have run over it and nobody has ever raced on it.

This is what makes the Lundy Race the most unique Trail running experience we have created so far. Fourteen miles of pristine, wildlife encrusted tracks tended by the Landmark Trust are open for us to run, walk and crawl. Whichever way you do it, you will visit all 3 lighthouses traversing the undulating eastern and western clifftops, cling to the precipitous slopes and run along the central spine of the island (as well as a few side tracks). You will definitely discover this beautiful and rugged island in all its glorious entirety, on foot and at your own pace.
