The Ruby Run are pleased to be introducing a new trophy for their 15th race in 2017; the Dartington Glass Club Trophy. 

The award is being introduced to thank Dartington Glass who have kindly sponsored us every year since we began in 2003. A Dartington Glass Club trophy will be awarded each year for the winning club to keep and display. The finishing positions of the first four runners for each club will be added together and the club with the lowest score will win the Dartington Glass Affiliated Club Trophy for that year. Another reason to push the training that little bit harder!! Good luck...

Individual prizes to the first male/female finishers in age groups and first male & female local runners

Course Records

These are the times to beat - for 2017 there will be a Male and Female award for a new course record.

Hatherleigh to Holsworthy (the slightly tougher run!)

  • Vicky Pincombe in 2003 with a time of 1:19:13
  • Ian Gooding in 2013 with a time of 1:14:49

Holsworthy to Hatherleigh (the slightly easier run!)

Changing areas at both ends. Transport provided to the start, and back from the finish.

There are car parks in both Holsworthy and Hatherleigh which are within walking distance of both the start and finish.

Runners must be 18 or older on the day of the race. Walkers under 18 on the day of the race must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Team members​ must be 13 or older on the day of the race; under 18's must be supervised by an adult and have parent or guardian approval. All participants below the age of 18 must understand our insurance cover is for 18+ and they must be supervised at all times. We would stress that this is a very busy road and the utmost precautions should be taken at all times, all persons participate knowing the risks. For the same reasons we are unable to allow dogs to accompany participants.

Thank you to all the competitors that took part in the 2016 run… we look forward to seeing you in 2017!
