COVID-19 INFORMATION

Covid Safety measures

  • Signs reminding of ‘social distancing’ will be placed around the venue.
  • Seated staff will wear masks.
  • We WILL NOT be holding a race briefing. Instead runners will receive an electronic briefing with a video and description of the route.
  • For the start, we will be using a rolling start wave window split in to two one hour windows. This will be done alphabetically.
  • This event will be signed and marshalled.
  • Race chips/numbers will either sent out in the post, or ‘dipped’ in an antiseptic ‘bath’ and collected at registration.
  • There will be no prize giving ceremony.
  • Water and finisher’s medals will be located remote from the Finish to discourage social gathering (our biggest concern).
  • Spectators will not be encouraged.
  • All marshals will be given bin bags and disposable gloves. Anyone caught littering will be disqualified.

We will be signing runners back in back in when they finish their run behind the Plume of Feathers Pub . All runners will be issued with an NFC chip which will be used to sign in at the finish. They will swipe themselves in at the end and we will have a manual paperback system. We will be accounting for all of our runners with this new back-up policy. This applies to ALL runners. We will also have sweepers out on the course for all three distances.

Organiser's Description

The 8th Something Wild Festival 2022 has Devon’s best trail running routes at its heart, a wonderful new venue and new routes, taking in the Avon and Salcombe estuaries and some of the best sections of the South West Coast Path
We have changed our venue for the Something Wild Festival are much searching and negotiations, we think we’ve found the perfect spot, with the camping site, at the fulcrum of the race routes, just as it was on Dartmoor.

Make this a summer to remember and bring your family.

This year, we are kicking off the festival with a Friday night race, which will be followed by a BBQ and an honesty bar.

The Festival site
The farmer has Kindly given access to his fields, overlooking the idyllic Hope Cove, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better location to wake up to in the south west. close to ideal swimming spots in Hope Cove, East Soar and Bantham Bay.

The campsite is suitable for up to 50 tents, parking and camper vans, as well as and serving as the fulcrum for all our trail events, which is ideal for spectators.

We’ll be offering extra toilet facilities, as well as a secret location (to be revealed shortly) for our speaker’s and comedy evening.

Unique South West Coast Path Trails
We have lined up some of the best coast routes on the South West Coast path for our night run, 5k, 10k or half marathon, marathon and Summit Wild Ultra as well as kid’s races.

We will kick off the festival with a night time run on Friday before the half marathon, marathon and ultra on Saturday and the 10k and 5k events on Sunday. For the Saturday events, runners will have the option of making their own transport arrangements, or can purchase a seat on our event bus which will shuttle runners to the start in salcombe and Bolberry Down respectively.

On the Saturday evening, there will be a comedy night in the main venue, involving some of the South West’s best comedians.
