EVERY WEDNESDAY ON DARTMOOR 6:30pm
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 14th November 6:30pm – Lower Trendlebere Carpark
Directions – from A38 Drum Bridges follow signs towards Bovey Tracey, just past Co-op filling station go straight over first roundabout and turn left at next roundabout signed for Manaton/Haytor/Yarner/Becky Falls.
Stay on this road AVOIDING left turn to Haytor. Approximately 1-1.5 miles along you will approach a sharp right bend (Yarner Woods is left) and continue up the hill, over the broken cattle grid, around a sharp left hand bend and there are 3 carparks on the right hand side of the road (the first is the meeting place and is almost immediately after that left hand bend after the cattle grid) and further carparks up the hill if bottom carpark is full.
Meet at the bottom carpark and use the running trail as it is safer than using the road.
Don’t forget to bring a headtorch!
Wear the appropriate clothing for the weather conditions. Trail shoes are required as the ground is always uneven. Consider bringing headtorch as nights are getting darker.
Running in the Group is undertaken at your own risk.
