Something Wild Trail Running Festival - Saturday

Hexworth, Yelverton, Devon

Organiser's Description

This event, now in its 5th year, will again be held at Huccaby Farm, nestled in a secluded valley in Hexworthy, a perfect little haven on Dartmoor.
Events include the trail marathon, which has more than 1325m of ascent, and the half marathon, which also includes two crossings of the River Dart. Our Summit Wild Ultra (35 miles), is an ideal entry level ultra, although with 1,649m of climb, it’s no walk in the park, believe us!
There is also a 10km race, a 5 km race and a 1k and 2k race for the kids.
All in all, it’s a great weekend, whether you've travelled with your family or just want to see the best that Dartmoor has to offer.

10K & 5K - TOTAL CLIMB 324 METRES (1063 FEET)
The 10K, which is nearly all off road is the first event on Saturday morning. It is the ideal course for all level of runner. The route follows most of the initial loop of the marathon course, crossing the fulcrum of East and West Dart rivers before ascending towards Yartor, Babeny and Sherwell farm but does not go as far north as Bellever. You will return through Brimpts farm. From here it is a half mile sprint mainly down hill to the finish at Huccaby farm. The cut off time for this event is 2 hours.


The 5k will start alongside the 10k but runners will split at Dartmeet and head right to Sharptor and back along the ridge and back towards Dartmeet adjacent to the road.
