A nice little run around Dartmoor


A happy team at Buckfastleigh

Clouds brewing

A great night time sky

Today was the first day of a 3 day residential for the Bridgwater College Level 4 Public Services students. I dropped them in Buckfastleigh with all their kit and they had to make their way to Princetown and then set up on the campsite, a distance of about 20km. I got to run round the moor watching them, mainly from a distance but I did catch up with and speak to one group. I clocked up around 28km today keeping an eye on the 3 groups and at least 20km of that was running, just in places the tussocks were too difficult to run over and I had to pick my way more carefully. The weather was great this morning but there were some rain showers during the afternoon and early evening
I got to try out my new OMM clothing that arrived yesterday and I am pleased to report that it is great kit to run in and waterproof in the few showers that occured. I stayed dry and warm all day.
