Haytor Heller 

Saturday 20th July 2024 

5:30pm Start


This popular, well established moorland race, now in its 38th year, starts below Haytor Rock and follows a hilly, single lap route before returning once again to Haytor Rock with a fast downhill scamper to the finish opposite the middle car park at Haytor. The course is approximately 6 miles and is challenging, with several steep ascents and descents and is generally run across rugged, open moorland (apart from two sections through woodland; firstly below Hound Tor and secondly below Haytor) and includes a stream crossing.

The course is completely off-road. Please adhere to the Country Code and note that dogs will not be allowed to accompany runners, nor likewise will any following cyclists. Drinks will be available at Hound Tor (approx. 3 miles) and at the finish.

For your safety and that of all runners, strictly no headphones or earphones of any kind to be worn during the race. Runners ignoring this rule will be disqualified.

In 2023 the Haytor Heller was proud to be part of the Dartmoor Fell Series.  The race was a scoring event for the Fell Series.  For more information please check out www.swfellrunners.uk

Race HQ is at the Coach Park, located at the far end of the lower car park. There will be toilets but no showers or changing. We will have a wide selection of goodies, including our famous Trotters cakes. We will also have a BBQ on the go. We hope you will be able to stay and join us in what promises to be a cracking evening.

There is a strict race limit of 350 so it is advisable to enter early. The race has sold out for eight of the last twelve years. 

We will only accept number transfers on the day of the race. Please come to Race HQ where there will be a transfer form for you to fill in. Please note there will be an administration charge of £3 per transfer.
