This seems to be a hot favourite for regional runners , especially popular now with great junior courses and a village ‘Oak fair’ which runs all afternoon based around the scenic Meavy village green. Of course we are biased because we host it and contribute a good amount to village.

The run

The Burrator Horseshoe is a 6-mile moorland run from Meavy out over Dartmoor, via Burrator Reservoir, Sheepstor Dam, Sheepstor summit (369m), Gutter Tor summit (357m), Ringmoor Down and the cooling Meavy river ford – the route map is below. It has a spectacular finish with a nice ford dip and an awesome reception on the village green outside the welcoming Royal Oak

Inn http://www.royaloakinn.org.uk/ .

A few key route bits

Seniors back to village start and finish; Plus continue with detour at ‘scout hut’.

Juniors will start in field and finish on green.

£8 £1:50 for junior races
