About the event

The inspiration behind this running retreat has one sole purpose...to share this breathtaking sceanery and challenges of the SW Coastpath to all levels of runners from all over the UK and beyond. Whether you are a seasoned runner, just finding your trail legs or maybe you simply want to recce the course for the Puretrail Tsunami Series race, we have you covered.  

Atlantic Horizons would like to offer you the opportunity to join us on the trails and gain some local knowledge of the coast path as well as guidance on trail running technique, practical running nutrition, race preparation and injury prevention. 

We are pleased to welcome the founders of Puretrail Running Events, Steve and Mark who have kindly offered to join us for the weekend, share their wealth of running experience and maybe provide you with a litte insight as to what to expect from the Tsunami Series event. Not only that, I am sure that if you follow the trail running community you may have heard of run4adventure and the man behind the videos reviews and race documentaries, Loyd Purvis. Loyd will be on hand to provide you with some valuable running advice and there may even been some merchandise available for you to purchase.
