Newton Abbot Ladies' 10K 

Sunday 22nd September 2024 (Provisional date)

10am Start

The race starts and finishes at the beautiful Dornafield Caravan and Camping Site.

2023 will be our 26th year at this superb venue where excellent changing facilities and showers will be available to all competitors. It is situated just off the A381 which runs between Newton Abbot and Totnes. Free parking is available on site.

The scenic course follows undulating rural lanes throughout, with little traffic, and passes through the local hamlets of Ogwell and Denbury. Take a look at the course map HERE Drinks will be provided at approximately 5 and 8 km and at the finish. The course is well marshalled with Ambulance cover in attendance. Please note that headphones are not permitted and anyone caught wearing them will be disqualified!

In February 2021, Mr Peter Dewhirst, the previous owner of Dornafield, sadly passed away. Mr Dewhirst and his family always supported this race and welcomed us every year. To honour Mr Dewhirst, we have introduced the Peter Dewhirst Memorial Cup which will be presented to the winner of the race. The winners name will be inscribed on the cup but the trophy will remain at Dornafield to be presented in subsequent years. 

There is a strict race limit of 300. Entries are ONLINE ONLY, enter early to avoid disappointment as entries will only be taken on the day if the limit has not already been reached.

Registration will open from 8:30am

The new owners of the site, the Caravan & Motorhome Club, have very kindly agreed to continue to allow us to donate £2 of your entry fee to Bowel Cancer UK. Since the race started we have helped them raise over £33,000 for the charity.

There will be refreshments available before, during and after the race. Who can resist our famous Trotter cakes!

We would like to thank our sponsors Sibelco who have very kindly sponsored all our Teignbridge Trotters events again this year.

A unique memento of a print from local artist John Charles Skinner for all finishers, with your race position as the print number.
