Dates for the Winter Series 2018 are now available – see Current season’s runs page. Runs will start as usual from 0930 – 1030 on Sunday morning. You can choose to run either Long (13-15 km) or Short (8-11 km). Stick to the same course for the series if you want to be competitive. The end of series bash early in the New Year will be a score event, as usual.

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, and we will start collecting in controls after 1300. 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!
