A brilliant resurrection of an old classic by Erme Valley harriers last year. Will contain some challenging junior races routes. This will be an Wednesday evening format race. Race approx 10k and 450m of climb, you will have stunning views over the South Hams. Last year was hot and great course with a little tarmac to get to finish at the end- so you can stretch out!
The route is now confirmed and agreed with the main landowners and DNPA. Parking at park and ride, short walk to Race HQ and registration at the rugby club, then a little warm up walk (1km) to the start on edge of moor Gr 654569 . Junior races start and finish here. Seniors races starts here but finish back at rugby club.
Fab senior route with a brisk start up Western Beacon then crossing open moor to loop down, around and up to Weatherdon, some quick track followed by a scramble over tussocks to take you to Glasscombe Ball then fast down to the stream crossing at Scada Brook, (what goes down must come up) and a sharp rise up to Ugborough Beacon then a second stream crossing at Lud Brook, and across to Western for a very fast descent to the finish. There are clear tracks and trods in places but sound route finding will help with off-piste sections.
Route above note walk to start after registration… is also site of start and finish of junior age groups.
