The Dartmoor VOLCANO race was the first race of the pureTRAIL race series. Now it's back for a 5th year!
A 10.25 mile race over rough Moorland tracks and trails, with almost 500m of ascent.
A high level route touches southern Dartmoor's highest point, Ryder's Hill and traversing rocky, boggy and sometimes extremely 'technical' terrain before reaching the focal point of the Race.....the Red Lake Volcano.

3 river crossings
1 Clapper Bridge crossing
1 Volcano ascent
1 long uphill start
1 long downhill finish
Start time 11:00
Fully marked and marshaled course.
