Winter Series 2017
Dates are nearly all finalised for the forthcoming Winter Series. Anyone want to set the run on 3rd December? For details of runs see the Current Season’s Run page. Runs will start as usual from 0930 – 1030 on Sunday morning. The plan is to hold five events in the series, finishing with a score event just after Christmas. There will be a Long (14-15 km) and and Short (10-11 km) for each run, so choose which suits you, and stick to it for the whole series. The final score event will be held on New Year’s Eve, based at Throwleigh Village Hall.
Dartmoor Runner’s events often involve extreme conditions
All runners should be experienced in running over rough terrain and be competent to navigate in bad weather. In poor weather full body cover, map, compass, whistle, hat and gloves should be carried. The organisers cannot be held responsible for a runner’s safety after a runner has left the start. Runners must respect private property and respect the rights of other moor users during these events.
Registration and cost
Registration for runs is from 0930 to 1030 on the day of the event. The cost is £2.00 per run. Courses close at 1400. Any runner who has not completed the course by 1400 will be deemed to have retired. All runners must return to the start and let the planner know that they are safely off the moor even if they have not completed the course. Bring a 1:25,000 OS or 1:40,000 Harvey’s map to mark your course. The use of GPS as an aid to navigation during any of these events is contrary to our philosophy and not allowed!
Winter Series 2016
It was great to see such a good turn out for the New Year’s bash, our end of Winter season run. For full results see below. Well done Tim, Jim and Adam for getting 130/150 points. Tim was just ahead of the other two by a minute. Results are expressed as a proportion of 130. I have now been able to check the overall results – unfortunately I had not noticed a couple of omissions. As we all get older I think we might need to redefine Vet categories…..

An attempt has been made to collate all the Dartmoor Runners results in one place, and the result can be found here. Some results are missing (see here for a list) can you help fill in the gaps?
