Here you can find a list of the races that many of our members have run so that you can plan your running year. Many sell out and some require a ballot for entry.
|Month||Race||Start Location||Distances||Date||Details and Website|
|January||Blackdown Beast||Dunkeswell||16 miles|
| The Blackdown Beast is a very muddy social run so although it is a long distance to begin with it is not a timed event and there are lots of stopping opportunities. A great chance to cover 16 miles off-road.
|February||Four Trigs Sidmouth||Sidmouth Sailing Club||17 miles|
(2 or 3 trig alternatives)
|10th February 9.30am||A challenging hilly route that will test leg strength and weather endurance.
Needs some local/route knowledge – Sunday runs
|10th March 10:30||Better than Christmas?
|April||JP’s Exe to Axe||Exmouth||6 miles, 11 miles, 20 miles||7th April||Stunningly beautiful and stingingly tough with elevation in the last half to make your eyes water.
|April||The Bridgewater Bolt||Bridgewater||10km||19th April 10.00am||This is a predominantly flat route through the villages of Chilton Trinity and Wembdon with a nice mix of urban and country scenery - just a couple of hills to contend with. Beautiful views of the Quantock Hills and Somerset Levels add to the attraction of this exciting race. Like last year we expect entries to sell out before the event date with just over 850 participants so early entry is advised.
