The T S U N A M I o c e a n t r a i l s are back with another tidal wave of Trail Running. They are due to hit the North Devon and Cornish coastline next summer: Friday 18th and Saturday 19th June 2021.
Friday 18th June will be the start of our longest and toughest pureTrail race to date.. the TSUNAMI 24, a 75-mile ultra starting and finishing at Castle Bude.
75 miles, 24 hours max, 5000m of ascent. Finishers receive 5 ITRA points
The existing distances of 16 miles from Hartland Quay, the Clovelly Marathon and TSUNAMI ULTRA (37.5 miles) continue, and are complimented by the shorter TSUNAMI 7.. a 7.5-mile ‘sprint’ to the finish from Morwenstow.
Finishers of the Tsunami Ultra of 37.5 miles receive 3 ITRA points and finishers of the Clovelly Marathon receive 2 ITRA points.
Entries are CLOSED with no entries on the day.
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, 37 miles), Clovelly and Bude (Marathon), Hartland Quay and Bude (16 miles). 37.5, 26.2, 16 miles or 7.5 miles.
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 11 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 routes 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!
