This notorious race, dubbed “The Grail of Trail” is quite something to experience. Off limits to runners all year round, it is mysterious and magical. Runners will pass through some challenging and stunningly beautiful terrain including ancient forests, pristine rivers, and brutal steps up and down and up again. This relentless mix has broken many a runner, and the marathon trail distance of the Otter makes for a big day out. All in all, a fabulous challenge.
