The Dartmoor VOLCANO race was the first race of the pureTRAIL race series. Now it's back for a 6th year!
We have reversed the route for the first time, giving a totally different prospective of the race..... It's now easier!
A 10.25 mile race over rough Moorland tracks and trails, with 479m ascent compared to 562m in previous years.
A high level route touches southern Dartmoor's highest point, Ryder's Hill and traversing rocky, boggy and sometimes extremely 'technical' terrain. With the focal point of the Race.....the Red Lake Volcano.
The race has the feel and attitude of a north-country fell race and includes :-
3 river crossings
1 Clapper Bridge crossing
1 Volcano ascent
1 long uphill start
1 long downhill finish
Start time 11:00
Fully marked and marshaled by experienced trail runners.
Bespoke medal for all finishers.
Event T-shirts can be purchased through the SiEntries system at anytime and collected on Raceday.
The race starts and finishes in the village of Scorriton, (TQ110JB) on the edge of Dartmoor. 4 miles off the A38, Buckfastleigh/Ashburton junction.
Race held under Trail Running Association guidelines, permission of Dartmoor National Park Authority and the land owners.
