The Delicious Drake’s Trail is a trail running event with a difference, taking food-loving trail runners on a gastronomic tour of the western fringes of Dartmoor between Tavistock and Yelverton.
The trail starts in the ancient market town of Tavistock (birth place of Sir Francis Drake), it finishes at the Moorland Garden Hotel near Yelverton. From the start in Tavistock, runners (fit walkers are also welcome) will follow a way-marked trail enjoying approx. 11.5 miles of scenic moorland, farmland, country lanes and surfaced trail. Along the way they’ll be treated to a mouth-watering variety of locally produced food and drink tasters including beers and wines, savouries and sweets.
Only 300 entries are available so be quick if you want to secure a place!
Proceeds from the Delicious Drake’s Trail will go to CHICKS, a wonderful charity which provides respite breaks at its centres in Devon and Cornwall for disadvantaged kids from all over the UK
CHICKS is a Registered Charity in England & Wales (1080953) and in Scotland (SCO40536)
