East Devon Round

Race Director - Alasdair Moffet

The East Devon Round is an ultra marathon, proudly self-described as a race by runners, for runners. It's a great opportunity to meet some new people in the running community over the weekend. 

The race offers the following amazing statistics - 62 miles, 8000 ft, 24 hours, 9 (very well stocked) aid stations and 2 areas of outstanding natural beauty. Completing the race will also gain you 4 UTMB points. If you need any more persuading to take part, Tailwind will of course be available on the aid stations, and at the end, a pint and pizza awaits all finishers. 

The race can be completed solo, in pairs or in teams. In 2019, the winning time was 12:21 mins.

This year, the race takes place on 2nd May.

Spire Ultra

Race Director - Jamie Glazebrook

The Spire Ultra is run every year for a local charity, this year all profits are being donated to the High Ashes Rural Project. 

The route largely follows the Round Chesterfield Walk. Runners can choose to either complete the 34 miles on their own, or as part of a relay team. 

Jamie designed the race to encourage local runners to step up their distance, and introduce them to the world of ultra-running. The Spire Ultra remains a fantastic introduction to Ultra races, with 95% of the route off road, taking in hills, woodland, canal paths and railway trails. There are some very well stocked aid stations along the route, where you will be able to find some Tailwind should you need a top-up. The race ends with a friendly meal at the North Wingfield Parish Council Building.

As well as organising the Spire Ultra, Jamie is currently setting up a new ultra race in Derbyshire, as well as offering Trail Running skill workshops through his business First Light Active - https://firstlightactive.com/

This year, the race is scheduled for 9th May 2020. To find more information about the race, head over to https://spireultra.wordpress.com/
