I have decided, somewhat reluctantly, to cancel the R2T2 series of events for this year. They involve a huge amount of work to plan and set up, but take up, at least in pre-entry, has been negligible, and I feel that our scarce volunteer resources are better spent on events which are more likely to attract more participants. I'd like to think that I can come up with a format which involves far less effort, but nevertheless works towards the same objectives of getting runners and riders out into the forest doing something slightly different from the norm. I am about to test out some virtual courses using a smartphone app, and I will share the results when done. This might offer an alternative!


Tracks = Mountain Biking
Trails = Trail Running
Man V Bike = Running the Bike Course


Each event is based at a village hall or leisure centre with ample car parking, toilets and refreshments laid on. Runs are approx 10km in length and you carry a timing chip to 'dib' several checkpoints along the way. The rides are 60 mins and you 'dib' as many checkpoints as you can in the time.

Run Ride Tracks Trails - R2T2

If one term could be used to sum up this website it could be 'Off-Road'. As well as giving information about our own forthcoming events, the aim is to bring together a variety of off-road events in the South West and Wales, whether they be on two feet or two wheels.

Going off road has become more popular and accessible over the last few years.  Running events which make good use of the many tracks and trails within our shores, more runners are out there, enjoying an event which does not involve tarmac and traffic.
