Burrator Horseshoe

Race Date: Saturday, 15/06/2019
Race Distance: Other - Run

Another Saturday, another summer fair and another fell race. In its 22nd year the 6 mile Burrator Horseshoe takes you from the delightful village of Meavy, with its lovely village green, pub and fair, up on to the Burrator reservoir dam and up on to Dartmoor. This then involves a 1200ft climb up Sheepstor, a swift descent and then back up Gutter Tor, before a fast descent back, through a deep ford, to the village. Some very fast runners out at the front, with the winner coming in just over 40 minutes. 166 finishers. I was the 4th in for the winning Tamar Trail Runners team.
