Our Winter Series 2019 dates are now nearly all finalised. The first run will be on Sunday 22nd September, planned by Jim and Robin, Venford Reservoir..
Please contact James Jackson if you are able to plan a run later in the series. As usual, runs will start from 0930 – 1030 on Sunday morning. You can choose to run either Long (13-15 km) or Short (8-11 km). When confirmed, dates will be displayed in current season’s runs.
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 the rights of other moor users during these events. Enclosed land is to be avoided unless crossing on public rights of way. Dogs must always be under close control, and on leads when close to livestock. Runs are planned to minimise disturbance of ground nesting birds during the March-July period – see map of sensitive areas. For further information about Dartmoor Runners events, check out our Facebook page or email Rob Parkinson
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!
Long: 1st male Tim Lenton, 1st female Robin Carter
Short: 1st male Paul Glanville, 1st female Fiona Waddy
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?
