designed for runners, by runners

OuterEdge Events was born from the desire to explore wild, lesser-known places within both the race format and also in a more social ‘challenge’ environment utilising local running guides.

Outer Edge founder, Mark Brooks, a passionate ultra-distance runner himself for over 30 years, feels strongly about the need to adventurise trail running, to venture out from the everyday, to see new and distant parts of the landscapes around us, and to tread gently over places where only nature has had an impact. It means that OuterEdge events are ‘out there’, adventurous, challenging but most importantly, they’re fun and environmentally friendly!

With our races we aim to provide a safe, semi-autonomous adventure into areas chosen for their remoteness and natural beauty, with full support from the OuterEdge Crew to help you achieve your goal, but also to push the boundaries of what you thought possible.

Our races and adventures are designed for runners, by runners, with no short-cuts and with the primary objective of promoting the social side of our sport with the edge of exploring an uncompromising natural environment.

We have been organising races in the South-West of England since 2015, and Adventures overseas since 2017.
