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 5-20 runners of varying speeds and abilities. The distance is usually about 6-7 miles.

Aim for the centre of Ashburton (North Street) passing SPAR and Co-op, turning first left, over the little bridge and you will see the carpark in front of you.

WEDNESDAY 18th September – Away evening to NORTH MOOR including the highest Tors on Dartmoor

Please wear the appropriate clothing for the weather conditions. Trail shoes are required as the ground is always uneven.

Running in the Group is undertaken at your own risk.
