Postbridge Pootle – Dartmoor Fell Series

 

 

 

SwFellrunners says…

A new race last year – which got whoops of enjoyment. An evening format again for this year based at Postbridge. Race organiser and Run Venture founder Colin Kirk Potter. Plenty of parking in DNP car park ( get a ticket) or across in woods . there will be juniors format to be confirmed but expect 6:00pm start for U9/u11 and U13/U15.

For seniors (7pm start) a route that takes you to less visited places with stunning views, remember kit may be required across this 10k course with 270m of climb. There will be marshals in a few spots to make sure course and road crossing safe – otherwise the course will be unmarked.

The route is reverse of what we previously explained – apologies – correct route below – 

Expected route will start next to DNP car park, taking level forest track then quickly into broken ground to Braddon lake then a sharp but runnable incline to Braddon tor ( very pock marked by cattle- good place to lose a shoes if wet) ! Then a nice circuit with a few small valleys for lower white tor, higher white tor and Longaford tor. It will feel like you are a long way from the start put a  footpath/ trod is then followed behind the historic powder mills farm obvious heading for the large chimney – this takes back to the main road crossing to take you into Bellever woods and a straight forest track to the finish.

There is a really great ‘green’ next to the clapper bridge- great for a post race dip and a pub to celebrate your success. Just watch out for the midges… there are one or two!
