East Mill Tor Loop
September 30 @ 9:30 PM - 11:30 PM
Series finale- and presentations Sept 30th morning races/ prizes post race
One of the most awesome valleys on Dartmoor so we are going to to repeat our series finale of last year – hopefully with a less chilly wind. An amazing course record from local runner Jamie Parkinson to chase over what is quite a technical course with many route choice options to help you keep thinking and debate later over a ‘wet’.
An additional race to make series 11 in total but still only 7 to count for seniors. Registration open from 9:00 -Junior races at 10:00 from Watchett hill gate; senior race at 10:45am same start but finishing at the Tors INN.
Series presentations at 12:30 and for juniors and seniors ( probably in the village hall) – all parking we hope at Belstone Cricket Club ( small donation please).
Starting at the gate head straight up the rocky approach to Belstone tor, follow the ridge along to Oke tor, sharp drop down to ford crossing then sharp rise up sheep trod to East mill tor, quick descent down to the ford either direct or further round on the stony path, a very wide ford crossing then straight along then up to Winter tor and then back up to Belstone tor, now fast back ( taking care over rocks) to the start gate but you have not finished straight down the road and turn right to finish next to the pub. Chill.
Due to time of year – kit may need to be taken – please come prepared to run with raincoat, hat, gloves, whistle, compass and map. Kit will be advised on the day.
This a short Cat B race. If there is a severe weather forecast check this site for details.
