The official Butcombe Trail is a 47-mile route around six pubs in the Mendip Hills, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).  The route is mostly off-road and takes in beautiful running country and fantastic views as it criss-crosses the Mendips. In 2018 the race route was upgraded to 50 miles (with 2000m ascent), and  in 2019 we introduced an additional distance of 56 miles (with 2500m ascent). Both races are qualifying events for the UTMB® and sister races – the 50-mile version earning 3 points and the 56-miler 4 points.
