Why everyone should try a fell race this spring Even main stream road running events are now copying the pasty…
Thank you Ceri for working so hard to make the weekend happen. I know you had some unexpected challenges. I loved the whole journey and though I ‘only’ did the marathon; it’s given me a new appreciation for the Ultra folk. Incredible!
I want to thank you for a BRILLIANT lynmouth marathon. You’d marked the course.Your tee shirts, your beautiful wooden medals were a real treat, your marshals, your Land Rover guys were each supportive and encouraging. You did a great job. It’s such hard work! I’ll be back! And my bestie friend Mary Zarrett loved the Half marathon today. Don’t ever change your medals they’re unique, like Wild Running.
Thank you for your hard work. I’ll be back.
I wanted to thank you for organising and taking care of us all at the Dart swim run last weekend.
Garin my swim run partner and I completed the event, our first swim run event and really enjoyed it.
I loved the scale and friendliness of the event, it all worked really well and was great fun.
I hope it’s worked our well from your perspective as I’d love to do it again next year, although I’ll go for the marathon rather than half marathon and hope for better weather. Tell the whole team, well done on a great job and a fantastic event.
“Great but tough day. Thank you Ceri and team. Also thanks to all the others taking part this was one of the friendliest events I’ve ever done.”
“We did the marathon swimrun. Your team was exemplary. We have doen a lot of these events (have been part of the Otillo Logistics team) and your organsisation was the best we have seen. From your clear briefing to all the guys and girls on boards who popped up all along the route. Brilliant. Well done to you all.”
“I really enjoyed the Drogo Ultra. Over all I loved the low key element of it all at Registration and the Start and the checkpoints were great. That’s one thing I’m usually disappointed in as organisers usually forget to stock them sufficiently. They all had loads of food and a great variety. I loved the tomato soup and quiche. So please thank those lovely CP staff too.
I think the Drogo is a really good race – nice distance, nice route and starts/finishes at a sociable time!”

I have just spent a weekend away with our Triathlon Club wild running with Ceri & Martin & Richard as guides. We were a very mixed group of faster, slower, young, not so young, mostly not experienced wild runners & actually mostly of the fairer sex. The weather was pretty challenging with rain, wind & some lovely sunshine but what an ace weekend we had, so exhilarated with the views & the paths & the mud & the pub lunches & last but not least Ceri’s amazing guiding & hosting. I cant recommend these guys enough, we will definitely be back.

We had to share these reviews with you from our recent Dartmoor Wild Running Camp. (We try really hard to go the extra yard for all our clients and to make it fun, as well as challenging).
Ceri from Wild Running organised our trail running weekend in Devon. Everything starting from accommodation, food, catering, transportation to the routes and runs was absolutely perfect. Ceri was very accommodating with all requests and last minute changes, we were a mixed group of 20 and everyone one loved the wild running weekend. The runs were well organised including logistics such as having dry clothes waiting for us at the end of the runs. We are looking forward to having the wild running weekend as a regular event on our club calendar.

Thanks again for the fantastic Dartmoor Camp- I thoroughly enjoyed running with you guys and of course the weather was the icing on the cake. I can’t believe that we were wearing shorts and singlets on the moors when it’s back to warm layers this week. I’m sure I’ll be back on one of the Dartmoor Camps at some stage.
It was a great weekend with great company and has certainly provided me with new insights into running form and running technique.
I was pleased to complete the inaugural Newport marathon in 3.42… just within the good for age target of 3.45. Tor running certainly contributed to better endurance!
