Wednesday Night Guided Runs

Wednesday Night Guided Runs


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 5-30 runners of varying speeds and abilities. The distance is usually about 6-7 miles.

Wednesday 21st March 6:30pm – near Kestor Inn, Water, near Manaton TQ139UF 

As it’s Simeon’s last run with pureTrail running group, we are retiring to the Kestor Inn after the run for food/drinks. Everyone welcome.

Directions – from the roundabout at Bovey Tracey where the fire station is located, take the left turn signed for Becky Falls/Manaton. It’s a long, uphill windy road and will take you to the junction by the pub.

For our Wednesday night runs – Please bear in mind that the nights are getting darker so please be prepared for colder winds and wet underfoot at times. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear and now is the time to start bringing a headtorch. Hats and gloves may also be required.

Running in the Group is undertaken at your own risk.
