Both races take in the highest hills in the south West includingYes Tor and High Willhays. For the Marathon there is a total elevation of 5250 feet and for the Dartmoor 50, 10189 feet.

Dave Philp was first off at 6 am to tackle the Dartmoor 50. The route is tough but well marked and passes through the remotest parts of Dartmoor. Dave returned a fantastic time of 10h 45m to finish in 10th place overall. Pat Munn was next off to race the Highground Mrarthon. After completing the Dartmorr Crossing last weekend a 34 mile Ultra , Pat was in fine form again and finished in a very quick 4h 29m in 9th place overall. Superb stamina and fitness. Well done to both Harriers.

In Romania former Harrier Dan Nash running in the 50 km world championships picked up the Bronze Medal with an amazing performance of 2h 49m 1 sec., also smashing the UK 1981 record of Don Ritchie by 3m 28 secs.
