About

The Green Lantern is a circular 14 mile ‘half marathon’, which follows the Green Circle clockwise around Exeter, through wooded valleys, meadows, bicycle lanes and the banks of the Exe.

This is a lovely mix of trails, meadows, playing fields and flatlands which run alongside the Exe, through the beautiful Ludwell Valley, Hoopern Valley, Redhills and Mincing Lake Country Park.

Each entry will help raise money for FORCE Cancer Charity. In June last year, we managed to raise £800 for FORCE from our own donations.

Starting from Haven Banks, Exeter’s Quayside area opposite The Quay Climbing Centre, runners will turn right and cross the Exe via the weirs, running through the Hoopern Valley, through the University campus, Mincing Lake park, the Ludwell valley and the Barley Valley.

This is a new addition to the 2021/22 Wild Run Series and our first urban trail run.

Anyone can run as a team of up to eight, or as an individual.

Your actual finishing time from dib to finish, will be included in the final results, which will be available live on Google Spreadsheets.
