A third year running of this exciting Fell Race, again organised by Erme Valley Harriers and part of the Dartmoor Fell Series. Will contain some challenging junior race routes. This will be held on a Wednesday evening in the summer. Race approx 10k with 450m of climb, you will have stunning views over the South Hams.
The route is now confirmed and agreed with the landowners and DNPA. The route will be the same as in 2023 which was agreed to minimise erosion. Part of the entry fee will be given back to erosion management funds for Harford and Ugborough Moors where the race takes place.
Parking at railway station, 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. Senior race starts here but finishes back at rugby club. Please make sure you leave enough time to get to the race start from Race HQ! Registration closes 30 mins before race start.

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 tussocky scramble to take you past 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 Beacon for a very fast descent to the finish at the Rugby Club. There are clear tracks and trods in places but sound route finding will help with off-piste sections. Juniors U17 race in senior race.
