We are really pleased post 'Lockdown 2' to enable this years race to go ahead. There is great support from members of Meavy Parish Hall and Oak Fair Committee - even though there is no Oak fair this year. The Burrator Horseshoe is a scenic, challenging moorland run, held annually, this year starting in parking field and finishing at Meavy Village Green.

A few key changes this year - later start and junior races. Parking will be at eastern end (Burrator end) of the village - please use this to avoid a congested village - Voluntary donation goes towards the Parish Hall - but registration and refreshments is at the Parish Hall from 2:30 - juniors start at 4pm and seniors start at 5pm. senior race finishes at Village Green.

The race is held under Fell Runners Association rules and licence.

This year it is a qualifying event in a series of 10 fell races on dartmoor - 'Dartmoor Fell Series' that are being held from June through to September. (simple scoring league looking for best 7 races out of 10) all on fabulous routes.
