The Event

The Sticklepath Horseshoe is a 9.6-mile self-navigation fell race across the moorland of North Dartmoor.

Athletes are required to pass through 6 'Official Checkpoints' (Skaigh Warren, Belstone Seat, Belstone Tor, Steeperton Tor, Cosdon Beacon, and Skaigh Warren again), however they may take any route they wish to get to those checkpoints.

Friendly volunteer marshalls man the official checkpoints, as well as other points on the 'fastest route'.

We kindly ask that runners do not race with their dogs or any other animals. Please note that any runner attempting to race with their dogs will be asked to leave their dog somewhere else or they will be prevented from racing.

Please also be reminded that the Sticklepath Horseshoe Fell Race is a senior race, so entrants must be 18 to run. Participants must also understand that they run at their own risk, and that they must have read and understood the FRA race guidelines before they compete.
