Organiser's Description

Saturday 12th June 2021 @ 2pm

Marilyn's Meldon Madness - in memory of Marilyn Cooper.

Part of the Dartmoor Fell Race Series 2021

This race will take you to the highest point in the south of England. The 1,362ft ascent is tough enough to challenge any off-road runner but, at just five miles, it offers a rare opportunity for anyone to try their first fell race. The route is beautiful with stunning views over the county from Yes Tor and High Willhays (the highest point) before a welcome descent to Black Tor and down Homerton Hill to the finish at Meldon reservoir.

There are a number of compulsory checkpoints at which all runners MUST give their number to the stewards. Due to difficulty of marking the course accurately, self-navigation is required by all runners.

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.

Race Headquarters is at Meldon dam pay and display car park (nr Okehampton grid ref: SX 561 917). The start and finish is a short walk to the other side of the dam.,-4.0505929,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x486c5bd261c05845:0xd4d66fa2f9835102!8m2!3d50.7036676!4d-4.0392163 

Junior races too - entry on the day at £1

Senior race age category prizes will be awarded courtesy of Coopah Running. 

The event is supported by North Dartmoor Search and Rescue who will be present to assist injured runners if required. Please consider donating to their vital work.
