DTAR is run by runners, for runners, so every event is designed for maximum challenge with maximum fun. Check out our upcoming events.

Welcome to Drovers Trail & Adventure Racing, which was started in 2012 with the aim of bringing sensibly priced off-road events to Wiltshire that offer runners challenging courses and a friendly atmosphere in which to compete.

Drovers, as it is quickly becoming referred to, is led by two committed runners in their spare time and supported by a band of like-minded volunteers, family and friends.   

The events

Drovers Revenge – November:
You can be sure of an excellent and enjoyable run in the Drovers Revenge. Normall held in November, this is a tough 9 mile approx. off-road run which starts and finishes in the village of Broad Chalke near Salisbury. The next running of this event will be in November 2014.

The Wiltshire Bustard (Drovers Half Marathon) - February/March:

The Wiltshire Bustard (Originally the Drovers Half Marathon), although nearer 14 miles, is a great run in its own right as well as a training run for London or the Grizzly. Starting from the Salisbury Racecourse, runners head out towards Shaftesbury as far as Broad Chalke and Fovant Badges before heading back to the racecourse.  The course takes in muddy trails throughout, fantastic views and three climbs of varying steepness!

Drovers 10k - April (Postponed):  

Setting out from the very picturesque Langford Lakes, a Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nature reserve, this 6 mile off-road route climbs up to an old roman road with spectacular views. It then winds down through woods to a very swift descent to the finish.

Event Organisers:
Since the 1990s Martin and Pete have between them competed in many challenging multi-terrain races, trail running and adventure races and cycle-sportives.  These include: The Grizzly, Original Mountain Marathon (12 and counting), rat races, to the Etape du Tour and Dragon Ride.  Martin and Pete  are experienced competitors and motivated to deliver fantastic courses that will challenge the most experienced trail runners and adventure racers.  

Entry prices will be set at sensible levels so that you do not need a second mortgage to enter! And events will encourage a relaxed but competitive atmosphere and give something back to the local communities in which the events take place.

Enjoy the challenge!
