Ultra Trail Events
Ultra Trail Events
Here at Climb South West, we like to take you on a journey. You’ll find with all of our challenges, the place you finish up is never the place you started. All of the Ultra Trail Events have a clear purpose, whether it’s a 30km guided walk across Dartmoor, or a 117 mile run across the whole of Devon, you’ll find a challenge that suits you.
You might find you’re being led through the wilds of Dartmoor in the middle of Winter, guided by one of our qualified Mountain Leaders, or walking to the top of Golden Cap, the highest point of the south coast, as dawn breaks.
We love to help people achieve their goals, and hope to provide this, whatever your level. We encourage walkers and runners of any pace to take part.
Our Ultra Trail Events are different to regular ‘races’ or other events, as we don’t think of them as races, with winners; completing the event is worth celebrating enough.
Challenge yourself, go on an adventure or raise money for the charity of your choice.
