Further information

Top of the Gorge FestivalrnrnThis new outdoor festival, based on the success of the South West Outdoor Festival of 2017, will be a celebration of everything outdoors with trail races, sportives, camping, live music, guest speakers, food foraging, axe throwing (not in the direction of the runners...the race is tough enough) and many others activities taking place across the weekend of 23rd - 24th June 2018.rnrnAs this is a festival with a whole range of free to attend music and talks, there is a small admission fee (a Day Ticket) for spectators to enter the festival area, within which the race village, start and finish is located. Runners of any distance do not need to pay any additional admission fee. Day Ticket festival tickets can be purchased on the day, or in advance via the Festival website. rnrnWe have be using the new start finish, with accessible parking just a short flat walk to registration and the start line. The routes will remain largely unchanged as we are able to jump onto the existing routes from our new base, though as we are effectively starting mid way round the old courses, you will see the route in a different and arguably less hilly light.
