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

Wednesday 17th July 2019 6:30pm – Newbridge Car Park, near Spitchwick

NewBridge Carpark is the start and finish location and known by many as a lovely spot to walk to Spitchwick. Parking is free after 6pm.

The route is 7.5 – 8 miles so be prepared for a longer run than usual.

Easiest approach is from Ashburton, Peartree (garage) junction and following signs to Postbridge/Poundsgate and Princetown. There is a narrow bridge after a mile or so, a steep hill and you then drop down to a narrower bridge, go over the bridge carefully and the carpark is on your left.

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.
