Killerton Trail Races
A stunning event in the beautiful grounds of the National Trust Estate at Killerton, North East of Exeter. The terrain is all off road with a good mixture of surfaces: fields, forest and trails with a nice variety of flat and hills to keep the run exciting and interesting. The race shows off the best of what the Estate has to offer - open parkland, landscaped gardens and even an iron age fort on top of an extinct volcano - some of the southwest’s most beautiful places to run!
Choice of half marathon, 10k, 5k, and 1 family fun run. Canicross 5k and 10k races now added!

As there are some narrow and technical sections, we will be starting the event in waves so everyone has a clear run. There will be waves of about 100 runners setting off at 5min or 10min intervals. All waves are open to all runners.
Canicross runners will have an individual time trial start in an order decided by the runners on the day.
