Starting at 10:00
WHAT IS LONE WOLF?
Unique off-road running event, based on the Dartington Estate with a 7k course of undulating terrain, taking in the natural beauty of the Dart Valley and Woodlands. Once the event starts, runners will have one hour to complete the course. Not so hard right? That's where it gets interesting...
Everyone who makes it round in time, will have whatever time left in the hour to rest and get ready, then at the start of the next hour, you'll have to set off again to complete the course a second time...then a third...then a fourth...and every hour until we have but a single runner left: the Lone Wolf.
Will you be the Leader of the Pack?
With a 24 hour window, there's the possibility of running 100 miles. Remember: with any more than 1 runner left on the last lap, the race will be on!

What is Lone Wolf?
Lone Wolf is a test of endurance, mental strength, and determination. Runners have one hour to complete the 7k course, and once done, they can rest until the next hour starts. The catch is that they must set off again to complete the course once more, and then again, every hour, until only the "Lone Wolf" remains.
It's a competition against yourself, pushing your limits to see how far you can go. And perhaps, just a little, it's a friendly race against others too.
Think you can conquer 100 miles during the event? The Lone Wolf challenge presents an opportunity like no other.
Participants in this extraordinary event will have the chance to win remarkable prizes, including:
Handmade wooden trophy for the ultimate winner
Wooden medals for all participating runners
T-shirts available for purchase on Eventbrite, to be handed out on the morning of the run!
To ensure a fair and exhilarating experience, we have some simple rules in place:
Be ready at the start line on each hour; if you're still finishing the lap or unable to continue, your run concludes.
In case of a tie on the number of completed laps by the final runners, the winner will be the first runner back over the finish line.
We'll have one male and one female winner.
Though we anticipate the run to continue for multiple laps, we reserve the right to adjust the competition in later stages if necessary to determine the ultimate winner.
Show respect to fellow runners and any members of the public using the area.
Most importantly, have an awesome time! We'll reward the best howls with high fives!

Take on this unique running event by completing the 7k course as many times as you can on the hour, every hour.
The route is of undulating terrain, taking in the natural beauty of the Dart Valley and woodlands. Runners have one hour to complete the 7k course. Runners have whatever time left in the hour to rest before setting off again to complete the course a second time... then a third... and every hour until only the Lone Wolf remains.
- Runners must be ready at start line on each hour. If you're still finishing the lap, or too tired to go on, that's the end of your run.
- If there's a tie on the number of laps completed by the final runners, the winner will be the first runner over the line. Example: two runners left at the start of lap 8 - if neither has completed the lap within the hour, the first one back over the line is the winner.
- One male + one female winner
- Whilst we expect the run to go on for many laps, we reserve the right to squeeze the competition in later stages if the wolf pack can't be separated - be prepared!
- Be respectful of other runners + any public who may be using the area.
- Have an awesome time - best howls rewarded with high fives!
