Meldon Hill Race – Sunday, 22 February 2009 @ 10am

Meldon, near Okehampton


There will be three courses available, all starting and finishing at Meldon Reservoir (near Okehampton) and going out onto Dartmoor: Long, Medium & Short, approximately 20km/14ml (1100m climb), 14km/9mls (775m climb), and 8km/5ml (325m climb) measured by straight line route – new courses this year! All the courses have a number of checkpoints which competitors must visit in order, choosing their own route between each one. The checkpoints will be advised in advance so that you can plan (and even practice!) your route if you wish. All courses will require some off-path running on open moorland although it will be possible to follow tracks for some of the courses if you prefer. Broadly speaking the courses are the equivalent of covering 20, 14 or 8 miles on a relatively flat road. Navigational skills are required – ie you must be able to use a compass and follow your own route across Dartmoor, particularly on the Long and Medium courses.
