THE Dartmoor Discovery, or DD as it's affectionately known, is the UK's longest single-lap road ultra marathon.

It has gained somewhat of a cult status on the running circuit and is one of those races that runners have to have on their CV.

This huge event on the running calendar has rolled around once again and as always, it started and finished in Princetown.

The course, that stretches across 32 miles and 899 yards, takes you up and down some of the toughest hills that Dartmoor has to offer. There are 10 feeding stations on the route, nine of which you can leave your own personal drinks at. A bespoke quality DD medal and technical t-shirt awaits anyone crossing the finish line in under the 6 3/4 hour cut-off time.

Debbie Drake took on the hills with 198 others and finished 86th place in 5.37hrs, 3rd in age cat F55 which makes for a very memorable day for Debbie.

Elsewhere, Dawlish Coasters had a good turnout at Haldon Forest Parkrun on Saturday as two of their members, Kate and Henry Irvine, both began their wedding day by completing Parkrun!

Lastly, on Thursday 13 June, the club are hosting their Coastal Dash event at Dawlish Warren. The 4ish mile race starts from outside the Boathouse at 7pm and at the time of writing, there is still going to be availability for any late entries on the day.
