The T S U N A M I o c e a n t r a i l s are back with another tidal wave of Trail Running. Due to hit the North Devon and Cornish coastline again this summer: Friday 17th and Saturday 18th June 2022.
Friday 17th June will be the start of our longest and toughest pureTrail race to date.. the TSUNAMI 24, a 75-mile ultramarathon
starting and finishing at Castle Bude.
The existing TSUNAMI ULTRA (37.5 miles), TSUNAMI (Clovelly Marathon), TSUNAMI SIXTEEN continue, and are
complimented by the shorter TSUNAMI SEVEN.. a 7.5-mile ‘sprint’ to the finish from Morwenstow.
Finishers of the Tsunami Ultra of 37.5 miles receive 3 ITRA points and finishers of the Clovelly Marathon receive 2 ITRA points.
ENTRIES NOW OPEN ..
We’ve chosen the most rugged, wild and remote section of the North Devon and Cornish coastline for some extreme fun
ong the clifftops and cliff trails between Westward Ho! and Bude (Ultra-Marathon, 37 miles), Clovelly and Bude (Marathon),
Hartland Quay and Bude (16 miles). 37.5, 26.2, 16 miles or 7.5 miles.
We’ve procured the iconic Clovelly harbour for the start of the Marathon…uphill on the cobblestones through the
illage to reach the Coast Path and finish on the lawns of Castle Bude – taking in almost 2,000m of ascent along the route.
It’s a tidal wave of endurance trail running.
The Ultra adds another 11 miles of serious fun, while the sixteen includes the toughest, most vertiginous section from Hartland Quay.
These races are undoubtedly some of the toughest trail running challenges in the South-West. Due to the nature of the terrain,
wild and isolated (no towns or villages along the route), they will also prove to be the most rewarding.
Puretrail designed Tsunami medal to all finishers.
Bespoke Tsunami t-shirt and/or Bus transport to the start of each race from Castle Bude will be available to purchase,
via SiEntries entry system.
Will you be a finisher or will you be wiped out trying?
This is not for the faint-hearted. With massive ascents and descents, it will be one of the toughest routes in the South West.
PureTrail checkpoints will be superbly stocked and managed by runners for runners to get you through to the end,
where a well-earned bespoke medal sits awaiting your return!
