My friend and colleague Dave Rickwood from the Woodland Trust has asked if I would mind promoting a running race they are organising in the Bovey Valley on Sunday 19th October – my pleasure.
The race is called the Bovey Beauty and it is a cross country race over 10 miles (16km). It does involve a bit of climbing too 1800 feet (560m). The race starts at 11am. You can download a race form here.
I myself will not be entering ….. because I am already entered (and paid up) to run the Great West Run half marathon in Exeter on the same day – so perhaps next year.
For those of you who like your Dartmoor running races The Drogo 10 (The National Trust’s and South West Road Runners race) will be held on Sunday 16th Novemember at 10.30am. Further details here. Perhaps Dave and I should both run that one as it now runs entirely on land owned and managed by the National Trust and the Woodland Trust.
