The Feighan Fury 10M Trail Race and Templeton Trail fun run and walk.

The South West Road Runners and the Exe Valley Rotary Club bring you the annual Templeton Trail fun run and walk and the Feighan Fury 10 Mile Trail Race.

The Feighan Fury is a challenging 10 mile multi-terrain running race around private land in the rolling hills of mid Devon. Expect hills, woods, trails, rivers and fun with 70% of the course off road.

We are promoting the positive mental health benefits of running. Come and join the community spirit and share in the experience of a fun challenge with a big heart.

Who was Mike Feighan

Mike Feighan was a much-loved member of the local running community. He worked in mental health and championed exercise for mental health benefits. He gave so much to the local community in coaching and encouraging people into active pursuits. He was an extremely talented runner in his own right – winning the legendary Grizzly 20 mile trail race five times along with countless other races. Tragically Mike abruptly passed away in 2021 and is much-missed by all that knew him. His running compatriots have determined he needs to be immortalised in an annual running event, and this is it!

Mike would often talk about getting out the house on those rainy and tough days as being the days you remember. He knew how to encourage people to face a little adversity and find out the benefits for themselves.

License pending from the Trail Running Association – the race will be run under UKA rules.

Minimum age for the Fury is 17.

The event will be held on Sunday 24th March 2024. 

The 10:30am start will be on the field adjacent to the HQ. Warm up and briefing at 10:20am at the HQ.

Please arrive in plenty of time to collect your race number, the HQ will be open from 9:00am

The Route

Please note that various sections of the course use private land and runners should not train on or access any private sections of the course at any time other than during the race.

 SWRR reserves the right to cancel the event should there be events out of our control, including adverse weather.

This is a cupless event. While there will be four water stations, you will need to bring your own cup or hydration pack. Juniors running / walking the fun run will be provided with paper cups.

What to Wear

The route can be quite wet and muddy in March; good grippy multi-terrain trainers are recommended.
