Summer Solstice Fell Race

Race Date: Wednesday, 20/06/2018
Race Distance: Other - Run

5.5 miles, 1000 ft of ascent and a couple of stream crossings qualify this as a 'fell race'. Having never ran a proper northern fell race I cannot really compare. However, a beautiful route on western Dartmoor up Great Stable Tor, across to and up Roos Tor and White Tor then back to the start at Merrivale. As the pub had already booked a coach of American tourists in for a murder mystery event, the runners were served ale and chips out of a shed next to the pub. Didn't seem to bother this hardy bunch of 84 finishers.
