The TSUNAMI series of PureTrail Races are here!
Clovelly Marathon - NEW - 2 ITRA points will be given to all finishers as a qualifier for the UTMB races
We’ve chosen the most rugged, wild and remote section of the North Devon and Cornish coastline for some extreme fun along the clifftops and cliff trails.
OTHER RACES ON THE DAY - Westward Ho! to Bude (Ultra-marathon of 37.5 miles), Hartland Quay to Bude (Sixteen miles) and Morwenstow to Bude (7.5 miles).
The longest day will be the start of the TSUNAMI 24, our longest and toughest race to date.... With 75 miles, 5,270 metres of ascent and 24 hours MAX.
TSUNAMI 24 starts and finishes at Castle Bude on FRIDAY 7pm - a separate entry system is available via www.puretrail.uk/tsunami
We’ve procured the iconic Clovelly harbour – for the start of the Marathon...uphill on the cobblestones through the village to reach the Coast Path...to 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.
We provide teas and coffees for the runners from the Red Lion Hotel on the harbourside before the race starts at 9am.
The Ultra adds another 11 miles of serious fun, the sixteen includes the toughest, most vertiginous section from Hartland Quay onwards, with the 7.5 mile race giving a short sharp introduction to the coastal hills, starting from the village of Morwenstow.
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.
