Marilyn's Meldon Madness

Race Date: Saturday, 12/06/2021
Race Distance: 5 Miles

Description from the organisers: Okehampton Running Club: 'This race will take you to the highest point in the south of England. The 1,362ft ascent is tough enough to challenge any off-road runner but, at just five miles, it offers a rare opportunity for anyone to try their first fell race. The route is beautiful with stunning views over the county from Yes Tor and High Willhays (the highest point) before a welcome descent to Black Tor and down Homerton Hill to the finish at Meldon reservoir.' It was also a very hot day which made it very hard going, however a very beautiful run. Our children ran in the junior fell race which was just before the senior race.
