A Guided Run: The Hobbit Half

13/08/2023 @ 9:00 AM 1:00 PM

Booking essential!

After the successful launch of my guide book; Dartmoor Trail and Fell Running, I have been asked to guide a few of the routes within for those less confident in finding the route, and I am happy to do so.

The Hobbit Half Marathon route concentrates on the wooded valleys of the eastern side of the moor, and some of its quaint villages nestled within.

The 13miles involves a lot of up and down, but is all runnable and trail shoes are sufficient.

The route heads south to Hound Tor, then East to Becky Falls and the river Bovey. It then turns north west to Lustleigh and Hunters Tor, before reurning via the river Bovey back to Manaton.

Join me for a slow adventure with lots of places to take photos, learn about the local history of the area and chat about running on Dartmoor. I’m happy to sign any books on the day too and some will be available to purchase after the run also if you don’t already have a copy.
