Hi my wife and I are heading to Porlock in Somerset in 2 weeks for a few days. We are planning on some trail running, Anyone know what the SWCP is like for running around there? Also as it is in exmoor are there any 'must do' interior runs or given the weather would it be just too boggy? Thanks
I haven't done much running around Porlock, but I have done plenty of walking. The coastal path west of Porlock Weir towards Colbone can get boggy, but never known the stretch from Minehead to Porlock to be boggy or around Lyton and Lynmouth. The paths around the tops like Dunkery, Bossington and Selworthy are usually pretty dry.
Ilfracombe Running Club is pretty active, and there is another club in Minehead. There must be loads of segments/athletes/leader boards around there that you could search for on Strava and, through them, pick out likely looking routes.
