Exmoor National Park is one of England's best kept secrets, and this stage takes place in the lesser known western area of the National Park where a trail runner's mecca lies. The course encompasses stiff climbs and long descents, open moorland, thickly wooded combes (valleys), historical ruins, dizzying cliffs, exquisitly beautiful rivers and a stretch of coastline that is unsurpassed. We are confident that there is no course in Britain that offers such a variety of terrain within such a compact area. This truly is trail running territory at its best. The Exmoor course is widely regarded as the toughest course in The Series and is definitely a grueling test of endurance for even the very hardest trail and fell runners.

Car parking is provided free at this CTS Event.

Please follow signage and Marshals instructions upon arrival. Due to the small, sensitive locations used for the CTS events, in some instances parking may be located a short walk from the event base - a nice little warm up! We also ask, due to contingency arrangements, that you bring some change for car parking in case you are required to park in our backup locations (in such instances you may well also be taken by bus to the event - so please be aware of this too!). Your patience when such situations occur is very much appreciated. Endurancelife strongly advocate car sharing and our Facebook site is a good medium for this.


Shop: Energy bars, gels, coats and other trail running essentials.
Café: Tea, coffee, confectionery, etc.
Changing / Bag-drop areas (unsecured)

Mandatory Kit

Endurancelife events involve being out in remote areas for extended periods. Your safety is your responsibility and the correct equipment is vital for your well being.

We check kit either before, during or after crossing the finish line. Those found without the minimum mandatory kit will be disqualified; no exceptions given.

In rare circumstances certain kit may be deemed unnecessary; this will be communicated during the event briefing on event day. However, please NB this is highly unlikely.

Although not mandatory, basic (Half Marathon) kit is highly recommended for 10K runners.

We recommend trail running shoes for all categories.
