Course: This race is run under FRA rules ( and is approximately 20km in length. The course is tough (there’s 420m of climb) and set in some of the finest scenery in the West Country. There are Roman lead mines, underground rivers, a nature reserve, open moorland, potholes, an ancient rabbit warren, an Iron Age fort and prehistoric tumuli. You will run past Velvet Bottom, Rhino Rift, Beacon Batch, Twin Brooks, Dolebury, Rowberrow Bottom, Tyning's, Black Down and Rains Batch. All but 2km of the course is off road and it can get a little boggy in places so please ensure you wear suitable clothing for the conditions.


Facilities: There will be drinks stations at approximately 5, 10 and 15 km, and First Aid facilities will be available on the course and at the finish. At race headquarters at the Charterhouse Centre, there are (limited) changing facilities, showers and toilets. Light bites, refreshments and homemade cakes will be on sale during and after the event, in aid of the RNLI.  Car parking space is limited, so please share if you can.


Prizes: This will depend on the numbers of entries in each category, male and female, seniors and vets.  In past years, there have been over 20 prizes in total.  We hope to hold the prize giving at 2pm on the day. There will also be spot prizes allocated randomly as runners cross the finish line.
