Killerton, owned by the National Trust, is a working farming estate just six miles from Exeter in Devon. Killerton’s countryside team care for a huge network of 70 miles of footpaths, trails, permissive routes and public rights of way offering some of the southwest’s most beautiful place to run. Get closer to nature, explore the rural landscape and enjoy far-reaching views across to Dartmoor, Haldon and the Exe Valley.
The ten square mile Killerton estate was donated to the National Trust in 1944 by the Aclands, one of Devon’s oldest families. The 18th Century mansion overlooks open parkland, farmland and beautiful landscaped gardens. The historic grounds at Killerton are already an established location for running events and host a weekly Killerton parkrun. We are very excited to be partnering with Killerton and National Trust to introduce a new 10km and half marathon multi-terrain course to the Relish Running Race series, a challenging route that takes in some of the most scenic parts of Killerton’s countryside which have not been used by any other previous events.
