The Exmoor Perambulation
The Perambulation is Exmoor National Park’s iconic traditional self-navigated circular long distance walking event dating back over 725 years and we we are also offer up entries to runners.
Are you ready for the Exmoor Perambulation?
This year’s 30 mile “relaxed journey on foot for exercise or pleasure” (as the dictionary defines it!) around the original boundary of the Royal Hunting Forest of Exmoor will take place on Saturday 20th June 2019. You’ll be participating in a historic event that traces its origins back to the time of Edward I.
This is one of the most challenging walks in the Exmoor annual calendar and now for all you ultra marathon addicts you can join in the fun too. During the 30 miles the route follows the boundary of the Royal Forest at the time of its sale in 1818. One great aspect of this event is that much of the route is accessible only with permission of the landowners concerned – so you’ll access parts of the National Park not normally open to the public. Please remember to keep strictly to the route provided, which has been agreed with the landowners – detailed instructions, maps and GPX files are available form our downloads page to help you navigate the sections which do not follow public rights of way and the route in it’s entireity. You need to feel great about this as you will also be participating in the continuation of Exmoor’s rich history.
