the ULTRA- MARATHON- SIXTEEN
A Tidal Wave of Trail Running. The TSUNAMI series of trail races is due to hit the North Devon and Cornish coastline this summer.
We’ve chosen the most rugged, wild and remote section of the North Devon and Cornish coastline for some extreme fun along the clifftops and cliff trails between Westward Ho! and Bude (Ultra-Marathon, 36 miles), Clovelly and Bude (Marathon), Hartland Quay and Bude (16 miles). 36, 26 or 16 miles on June 17th 2017.
We’ve procured the iconic Clovelly harbour for the start of the Marathon…uphill on the cobblestones through the village to reach the Coast Path and finish on the lawns of Castle Bude – taking in almost 2,000m of ascent along the route. It’s a tidal wave of endurance trail running.
The Ultra adds another 10 miles of serious fun, while the sixteen includes the toughest, most vertiginous section from Hartland Quay onwards.
These races are undoubtedly some of the toughest trail running challenges in the South-West. Due to the nature of the terrain, wild and isolated (no towns or villages along the route), they will also prove to be the most rewarding.
pureTrail designed Tsunami medal to all finishers.
Bespoke Tsunami t-shirt and/or Bus transport to the start of each race from Castle Bude will be available to purchase via SiEntries entry system.
Will you be a finisher or will you be wiped out trying?
This is not for the faint hearted. With massive ascents and descents, it will be one of the toughest marathons in the South West.
PureTrail checkpoints will be superbly stocked and managed by runners for runners to get you through to the end, where a well earned bespoke medal sits awaiting your return!
If you have entered and ran The Big Dipper race (2016) then a £10 discount is applied when a further two 2017 PureTrail races have been entered. Any of the Tsunami races can be used for the discount.
