Organiser's Description

Sourton Tors - Wednesday September 6th – 18:00 Junior start 19:00 Senior start


A traditional fell run of approx 2.6 miles ascending 300m to Sourton Tors and looping back round the valley. There is a compulsory checkpoint near the trig point at Sourton Tors and a further marshall will be potisioned before the descent.

The route is entirely off-road with most on the open moorland of Dartmoor. Whilst providing a challenge is within the capabilities of most runners. After the race enjoy a drink and a meal in the Bearslake Inn (you may want to book).

Race Headquarters is at the Bearslake Inn car park at Lake, on the A386 between Sourton (near Okehampton) & Tavistock. The start & finish is next to Race HQ. Parking will be available in the farmers field just South of the pub - we will have a marshall telling you where to park.

Prizes for the first male and female and age categories will be awarded.

No mementoes – reflected in the low entry fee.

Held under the rules of the Fell Runners Association, race classification AS.

In keeping with the traditions and skills required of British fell racing, self-navigation is required by all runners - there are NO course markers. Getting a little lost is part of every fell runner's journey, so don't worry! Go and check out the route before race day if you can - the route will be on the ORC website 

The race is licensed by the Fell Runners Association. Whilst there is no mandatory kit requirement if the weather is looking bad then a whistle, raincoat and hat is advisable. The race is self navigating so you may also want to carry a map and compass if not familiar with the course.


Juniors can race too. Minimum age of 8.

Juniors over 13 can race in the senior race at 7pm as the FRA permits those over 13 to race this distance.

All ages under 13 will race at 6pm - distances of either 2km (under 11) or 3km (under 13)

Entry on the day at £1 for all juniors - even if they are running in the senior event.
