Sunday saw the running of this year’s Drogo 10 – the 10 mile off road running race through the Teign Valley. Over 500 entrants – amazing considering what a gruelling race it is. The fast racer was in in under 1 hour! Full race details can be found here.
I took a few pictures to capture the spirit of the place and atmosphere of the race. The full photo set is here.
The Teign Valley around Fingle Bridge always looks amazing in the autumn and this year is no exception
These guys finished 1-2-3 respectively – all finishing in under an hour
Runners in the landscape
This spaniel was first dog in but his handler really held him up
One of our Dartmoor Rangers – Stuart Mathieson running through Fingle Woods (which we recently jointly bought with the Woodland Trust) – Stuart completed the race in just under 1 hour 23 mins – impressive! My quickest time ever for the Drogo 10 was 1 hour 55 mins …..

Amazing autumn colours.
Well done to all involved – runners, volunteers, organisers and supporters – the busiest Drogo 10 yet I think!
