Caddihoe Chase 2019, Dartmoor – entries close on 22 September!

DAY 1:
Saturday 28 September 2019

South-West Championship event - Classic Distance (National level).

DAY 2:
Sunday 29 September 2019

Chasing start times will be computed on the basis of Day 1 running times, with a base-time of 10.00.

The terrain is typical Dartmoor, mixed woodland and moorland. The moorland is generally runnable with rocky tor outcrops. The profusion of pits and gullies, which add considerably to the technical challenge, is the unintended legacy of the former tin-miners.

Event Organiser, Alan Simpson from Devon Orienteering Club, says: "The Caddihoe Chase is an annual event in the South West. It was invented by Devon Orienteering Club, and we host the event alternate years, with other South West clubs taking their turn in between. We look forward to you joining us for a weekend of quality orienteering at the Caddihoe Chase, on the 28th and 29th September in what is a stunning location of south west Dartmoor."
 

Age-class Caddihoe trophies will be awarded on the Sunday, based on the two-day result.

The unique feature of the Chase is that, in every age class, the first runner across the finishing line is the Caddihoe Winner.
