The Templeton Trail is back by Popular Demand - Sunday 5th April 2020
Planned Choice of (approx:) 5K & 10K for differing abilities
The popular Templeton Trials will again be held by Exe Valley Rotary Club on Sunday 5th April 2020. Last year saw the largest turn-out of runners to date for this exciting cross-country fun run where you will get to see stunningly beautiful parts of Devon's countryside at its glorious Springtime best during a 5k or 10k run wholly off the road.
Without exception 2019 feedback was positive about the experience. Do come along with your fellow runners and help us to make 2020 event bigger and better than ever.
Once again the event will be off-road, principally using the attractive private (and otherwise inaccessible) woodland roads and tracks of the Cruys Morchard Estate. It is an experience unique to this event. Up hill and down dale, and maybe through a couple of small streams as well meaning a few wet and muddy areas are to be expected, (they aren't guaranteed, but be prepared for them all the same - it all adds to the fun).
The event will start and finish at Templeton village hall, EX16 8BJ where drinks and light snacks will be available.
Free parking is also available.

This is a cross country fun run, so there will be hills, uneven surfaces and the chance to get a little muddy... for those who are interested, here is the hill profile. There's a nice long downhill at the start, and the best bit is, you get to run back up it at the end.
