The Maverick Adidas Terrex X Series Exmoor 2021

Saturday 5th June 2021 | Caffyns Farm

Our Exmoor X Series debuted in 2018 and was quickly termed ‘The Beast’ and labelled as the toughest event of our Maverick events calendar, due to the stomach-churning amount of vertical ascent of over 2065m on our Ultra route.

Exmoor National Park in the South-West of England is known for its dramatic coastline and moorland and you can be sure that all three routes of our X Series event take in the very best that the area has to offer. Our routes take runners along parts of the South West costal Path which means stunning views and savage climbs will be plentiful.

Our Exmoor X Series event is not for the faint-hearted but we know that trail-runners of all abilities will be capable of completing one of the four distances on offer if they commit to the challenge ahead and put their mind to it.

In 2018 we saw some incredible personal feats of endurance across all routes and from a great array of running ability. As runners crossed the finish line we were inspired by their strength and determination to complete what is a consistently demanding punishing route. So we look forward to seeing you on the start line and seeing what you’re made of.

We are sending you along part of The South West Coast Path which is England's longest waymarked long-distance footpath and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles (1,014 km), running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, to Poole Harbour in Dorset. Since it rises and falls with every river mouth, it is also one of the more challenging trails. The total height climbed has been calculated to be 114,931 ft (35,031 m), almost four times the height of Mount Everest

The route starts at Caffyns Farm and heads along the coast path at Lynton, you will be met with towering cliffs and stunning sea views across to South Wales. Soak up the stunning sounds of seabirds nesting on the cliffs. As you venture along the coast you will enter the valley of rocks, a superb section of coast path well known for its herds of feral goats. This section is among the oldest Devonian rocks in north Devon and is highly fossil ferrous.

As you continue on your way you will become lost in the splendour. We take you to Foreland Point, a rocky headland which is the most northerly point along the Devon and Exmoor coastline.

The route then sweeps back inland towards some special forested sections that make you feel like you're back in the heart of Devon. One stand out area is Watersmeet, we know you will be enchanted by this section of the route. Following the River, taking in waterfalls. There are many other hidden gems on the Exmoor X Series event, we don’t want to spoil it too much for you, so come and join us! Adventure awaits......

Why Not Make Weekend of it and stay at the Start Line. Caffyns Farm offers you some fantastic facilities if you want to camp. Drop Colin or Gill a line and they will be happy to get you sorted out.

Also, we appreciate that Exmoor National park needs to be looked after so please take a look at Care Moors, they do a fantastic job in maintaining the park. Click Here to Donate
