Dartmoor Trail Running Weekend Away


Since there was quite a lot of interest when I mentioned it, I've been talking with the lady of Dartmoor Running Holidays, following the Running Show. She offers weekends away in Dartmoor. The prices include two nights full board (two dinners, two breakfasts, two lunches), tea and cake on arrival, up to three guided runs (length and duration of our choosing), an hours yoga and a deep tissue massage. We can hire out the whole property on the dates below.

It would be £285 per person for Friday through to Sunday lunchtime. We would all pay individually, £50 deposit per person then the balance 6 weeks prior to the stay.

Rough Itinerary: Arrive after lunch on Friday, go for a run, come back for tea and cake. Yoga session around 5pm then dinner. Saturday features a long run after breakfast (duration/length decided by us) followed by lunch. Afternoon is free. Dinner later. Sunday could feature another run after breakfast or deep tissue massages. Still interested? I know I am! Please could you let me know via the doodle poll which dates you would be interested in (you can pick multiple dates) so I can get her to reserve it for us?

  • Sent via email anyone interested?... Hi, I am a member of a community sports club, South London Orienteers who organise three great races on Surrey Hills, near Dorking on 9th June (Pre-entry £8.00). The races are 6 miles (10K), 10 miles (16K) and 18 miles (29K). We think these might appeal to those who enjoy running and trail running. Run under FRA rules. Mostly varied trails and tracks, timing check points. Competitors get a map of each race with the check points marked, there is free parking, indoor changing and showers, water stations, timing chips given out, and finally each person who completes the race will get a unique birch-wood medal etched with a picture of Leith Hill Tower, it is a lovely memento. All the information is on the South London Orienteering website and we have also made a video of the Ten Mile race to help people with route choice; the video is on South London Orienteers Youtube Channel There is a chance (just!) for anyone who is interested to 'learn' the route with us on Saturday 11th May, but they do need to contact me if interested. I wonder if you would mind send this information around your members as they might want to try something new. We welcome groups and people who want to run together. Thanks Sarah Brown
  • A request was made to pass this on... Message: Hi I just wanted to let you and your Runners know about the Binfield 10k race taking place on 19th May. There are still places left and 100% of the profits go to charity. This year we are supporting Youthline. I would be really grateful if you could spread the word! Thanks Selina
  • Hi all, great selection of runs here! Check out the Omnium in June! Great looking medal!
