Saturday 3rd August


The day starts off with a Parkrun at Parke Parkrun

Crossing the Dartmoor National Park is never less than scenic and atmospheric and there should be plenty of photo stops.Princetown, with the prison museum is a stop at mile 14 and Princetown is also the start point for a possible diversion to Fox Tor Mires, the location that inspired The Hound of the Baskervilles. Buckland Abbey is a diversion option at mile 20.

Post Run

Finishing at Plymouth there’s the gin distillery as a highly rated visit. The aquarium is also top rated. The Pilchard Inn on Burgh Island is a special location.
