 April 2017 - Dawn Chasers 

Comprising of 50km of hiking this challenge requires constant awareness of where you’re walking. Passing by Cut Hill, one of the remotest points in England and with only one ‘meet’ of the support vehicle at Princetown or Postbridge, you certainly feel ‘out there’… because you are.   Heading out from the National Park boundary, just outside Belstone, our route winds its way across a variety of tough terrain - Military roads, rough exposed moorland, sheep paths and the remains of a disused granite railway. You finish at the Park boundary on the outskirts of Ivybridge, before heading off for breakfast at a local cafe

Hosted by experienced outdoor challenge providers 'The Outer Edge' you can be one of the first people to take on this brand new exciting challenge and raise money for Operation Henry!
