The marathon, part of the Something Wild Trail Running Festival is our blue riband event. Starting and finishing at the festival site at Huccaby, it crosses the fulcrum of Dartmoor where east and west rivers meet at Dartmeet and completes a circuit of Bellever woods via Yartor, Babeny and Sherwell Farm. From here you will head east along Dr Blackalls Drive, crossing the river for a second time at New Bridge following a bone jarring descent and heading in to Holne Woods, then on in to Hembury Woods, skirting the brook before ascending the steep climb up Pupers Hill via Scorriton.
You can enjoy the long, gradual descent to Combstone Tor and the final crossing of the river at the Huccaby stepping stones, before reaching the sanctuary and bustle of the festival site.
We realise that not everyone can or wants to run a marathon, especially if they have to be back in time to hand over the kids, or once they have seen the imposing hills behind the festival site, so we have included a marathon relay option, just in case. The route is a classic and was described by one of last year’s participants as a Category A fell route however.
