The
2018 & 2019
Plym Trail
Marathon Series
The Plym Trail Marathon Series is situated within an AONB within the National Park of Dartmoor. The stunning views of the forests and valleys are breathtaking and you are likely to see Peregrin Falcons in the summer as well as an abundance of incredible flora and fauna.
 
Formerly an historic railway, this area is now enjoyed throughout the year by runners, walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
 
You will also see the wild ponies and sheep that permanently reside on the Moors as well as the smaller rodents, foxes, dragonflies and fowl that thrive in this wonderful community.
 
The Marathon course is a quick up and down in Clearbrook village followed by two 12.31 miles 'out-and-back' runs on the well-signposted Cycle Route 27 which will be well marshalled.

The Half Marathon course is a shorter up and down followed by one 12.31 miles 'out-and-back' run.
 
Registration ? Number pick-ups will be from 0830hrs on Race Day from Race HQ. Toilets and refreshments will be situated at the Race HQ near the Start/Finish Line and at the turnaround point at Coypool.
 
Toilets/Aid Stations ? Another refreshment station will be manned near Bickleigh Barracks which is situated approximately halfway between Clearbrook and the turnaround point at Coypool. At Coypool you must show your Running Number or you will not be recorded as having run the full Marathon distance !

Trail or Road Shoes ? It's up to you but the Trail is in great shape, even in wet conditions and it drains well because it was designed as a Railway by I.K.Brunel himself !

Does it Count ? All our events have a Race Permit from The Association of Running Clubs (ARC) and all our results are given to the 100 Marathon Club for verification purposes.

Parking ? Parking is FREE. Please park at the top of the hill as you first approach Clearbrook Village. Do NOT block any local residents' driveways and do NOT park in the Skylark Inn Car Park.

Directions ? Clearbrook Village is situated halfway between Yelverton and Plymouth. Postcode/SatNav PL20 6JD.

Bling ? You will receive a Finisher's Medal & Goody Bag on each day and you will receive a commemorative running bottle or cap for completing both days at any of our Series Weekends.

Final Instructions Email ? You should receive a final instructions email from the Race Directors 7 days prior to your event. However, late entries are sometimes missed so please contact us on [email protected] or 07943 855706 if you have any queries.
