Chagford Challenge 2017

The 2017 Chagford Challenge will take place on Sunday 8th October 2017.

A chance to see Dartmoor in early autumn, there will be three routes all with a full route description; they are on a mixture of footpaths, lanes and open moorland around Chagford.

The Challenge is to complete your chosen distance: 30 miles, 21 miles, or 17 miles by 19:00.

The event will start and finish at the Jubilee Hall Chagford SX 701875 located in the centre of Chagford near the church, registration will start at 7:15 to 08:50. Start times, 30 miles – 08:00, 21 miles – 08:30, 17 miles, & runners – 09:00. Car parking is available at Chagford Primary School (pending permission) on the way into town; due to limited parking, we would suggest car sharing. There is also a pay & display car park adjacent to the Jubilee Hall. There are toilets and simple washing facilities at the Hall.

 The entry list will close when either, the entry limit of 200 is reached or by 10th Sep 2017.
