Dartmoor Brewery Gets Behind Dartmoor Discovery Athletes

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2017

Dartmoor Brewery sponsored this year's Dartmoor Discovery Ultramarathon - a gruelling 32-mile race across the challenging terrain of Dartmoor.

The Dartmoor Discovery is the UK's longest single-lap road ultramarathon, and is organised by leading South West running club the Teignbridge Trotters.  This year's event, on Saturday 3rd June, started under blue skies, but soon saw all that Dartmoor's constantly-changing weather could throw at it, with torrential rain and a sudden drop in temperature.

Race Director Roger Hayes said: "Today we saw what Dartmoor can throw at you. Conditions were the worst we have experienced since we started staging the race seven years ago. Just to finish today was an achiement in itself."

Massive respect to everyone who took part, and to winner Adam Holland, ladies' race winner Lynette Porter, and team winners Teignbridge Trotters and the Mud Crew.
