Exmoor Running and Walking Festival
The Exmoor running and walking festival is a celebration of travelling on foot within the stunning Exmoor National Park. Whether you are a runner or a walker we’ve got something to challenge you as we base ourselves in the remotest part of the National Park.
How did the festival come about?
We’ve been organising the historic Exmoor Perambulation for 5 years now and our very own concept, Man vs Moor for 3 years. In past years they’ve been on different weekends over the summer but in 2021 we decided to bring them together on the same weekend. Not only is it the summer solstice so the longest days but it also opens up the opportunity to get more people together in one location to celebrate Exmoor and it’s stunning terrain.
Why bring them together?
We wanted to showcase the wild running and walking that Exmoor has to offer to a wider range of people. By delivering these two events on the same weekend we get to bring more of you together at the same venue at the same time, get more people staying at the event hub for the weekend creating a really nice vibe and social occasion and hopefully see a few of you rise to the challenge of doing both events in some capacity over the weekend.
