About 6 miles of breathtaking off-road running in the heart of glorious Dartmoor.
This popular, well established moorland race starts below Haytor Rock and follows a hilly, circular route before returning once again to Haytor Rock with a fast downhill finale to the finish opposite the middle car park at Haytor. The approx. 6 mile course is challenging with several steep ascents and descents and is generally run across rugged, open moorland, apart from two sections through woodland; firstly below Hound Tor and secondly below Haytor which includes a stream crossing. The course is completely off-road. The route passes through the land of two landowners who have kindly given permission for the race to take place. Please adhere to the Country Code and note that dogs will not be allowed to accompany runners, nor likewise will any following cyclists. The course will be marshalled with first aid cover by St. John’s Ambulance. Drinks will be available at Hound Tor (approx. 4 miles) and at the finish. There will be a memento for each finisher.
