Discovery Trail Challenge – Devon Taster 2018

Welcome to the Discovery Trail Challenge – Devon Taster 2018!

The DiscoverDTCy Trail has been the flagship recreational trail in the Tamar Valley for over 10 years, and is one of the most varied and rewarding routes in the South West. This year’s Taster Challenge will provide you with an opportunity to explore the Devon side with its hidden views and fantastic scenery.

The Devon Taster is the first of a series of three Discovery Trail Challenge events to raise money for Tamar Tender Loving Care (TLC), the charity that is dedicated to raise funds to protect and enhance the Tamar Valley.

The first event is on Saturday 6th  October 2018 with two distance options, starting from either;

  • Tamerton Foliot, Warleigh Lodge, Horsham Lane (Distance 17 miles)
  • Bere Ferrers Railway station (Distance 11.5 miles)

Finish by 7:30pm at the Tamar Trails Centre, Gulworthy.

There is a £20 per person entrance fee or £40 per team (3 or more, up to 6) which, together with personal sponsorship, we hope to raise £5,000.

What you get:

  • A fully signed course finisher’s certificate and goody bag!
  • Free water top-ups
  • A pasty lunch and cup of tea
  • Experienced medical cover
  • Regular check-in points staffed by marshals
