Our Wednesday night runs are the essence of the pureTRAIL philosophy. Predominantly, our wet and muddy trainers touch the road only when we are having to cross it!

Our Wednesday evenings are quite simply a gathering of like-minded runners escaping to the hills for an hour or so.. whatever the weather.. It’s ‘us time’, as well as ‘me time’. It’s revitalising, invigorating and motivational.. there’s plenty of ‘trail talk’, advice on running, generally, as well as what’s going on around the country, and locally, race-wise..   It’s fun..

Each Wednesday evening, at 6.30pm, we meet at a different location around the southern fringes of Dartmoor. All newcomers are very welcome, all abilities, and will join a very positive, happy bunch of trail runners. In recent weeks we have had new runners from, Teign Valley, Exeter and Plymouth. So just turn up, or preferably let us know via our contact page here or our facebook page – pureTrail Running Group

We have been running every Wednesday evening on Dartmoor since April 2015, with between 10 – 30 or more  runners of varying speeds and abilities. The distance is usually about 6-7 miles.

A relatively easy route than of late, with less hills than usual. Tim will be leading us around a route of approximately 7 miles.

Please let us know if you’re coming so we can allocate Group Leaders. Always best to post on Facebook (PureTrail Running Group).


Directions – the best way to find the reservoir is by typing Trenchford Reservoir into Google Maps.

There are many combinations of routes to get there through Bovey Tracey or Chudleigh Knighton.

Please leave plenty of time for your journey.
