The Imerys Trail Marathon

running on the moon

Imerys Trail Marathon offers a unique experience to runners. For one day only, the land of Cornwall’s China Clay Industry will be open to you, the public. The operational working sites along with land which has been regenerated from the industrial past provides a challenging and spectacular course. With only short sections of road, this multi terrain route takes you on sand roads which will leave you thinking you have been on the moon! Together with private farm land and picturesque tracks and trails, the course offers you stunning vistas of Cornwall’s countryside and coastline at it’s very best.

What they said

St Austell Running Club and Imery's delivered a slick operation. A unique course which shouldn't be missed if you want an opportunity to run a seriously challenging marathon with brilliant support crew. See you next year!

Incredible views, varied and VERY challenging terrain, my first trail marathon and I loved it. The marshals were lovely, the cold sponges an inspiration on the hottest day of the year so far. And I saw a Cuckoo!!!

A well organised very well priced unique race. Where else can you run on a lunar landscape with some breathtaking scenery. Worth the trip if you're not based in devon or cornwall. Will definately try and fit this into next years race diary

Undulating terrain... Possibly the hottest day of the year so far ... Absolutely mind blowing scenery .. Never seen at this aspect before even though I live locally .... Brilliantly organised from start to finish... Super duper marshalls at ALL points... Fantastically stocked drinks stations...Overall the best race I have participated in and also the hardest.
