Summer Solstice Fell Run Wednesday 21st June 2023
Juniors commence 6pm

The evening of longest daylight hours offers spectacular views across the Dartmoor landscape. The race was conceived as an introduction to the Fell Running ethos for local runners and has become so much more. It is organised by endurance runners for those that enjoy off road running. It is a not for profit event and funds raised are ploughed back into the following year. The event starts and finishes at Merrivale and takes in stunning countryside including Staple Tor, Roos Tor and White Tor.
