Devon Dumpling 2024


Devon Dumpling 2024

28th April 2024

 

There will be three routes. The 30 and the 18 mile routes will make their way up to Woodbury Castle and then downhill to the Exe Estuary. From Exmouth  participants will return to Budleigh via the South West Coastal Footpath. There will also be a self-supporting 9 mile route with a reduced entry fee.

Your Challenge is to complete your chosen distance: 48k/30 miles - 29k/18 miles or 9 miles within a time limit of 11 hours

Entrants must be able to read a map and follow compass bearings and must have sufficient knowledge, experience, equipment and navigational skills to take part in this walk in all conditions and especially in the event of bad weather.

All routes are covered by the OS Explorer 115 Exmouth & Sidmouth (1:25,000).

Because the routes have been agreed with private landowners it is important that you keep to them at all times.

Certificates will be given on the day to all those who complete the walk.

Dogs are permitted to accompany entrants as long as they are kept on a lead.  The rules of the town hall at Budleigh Salterton are that dogs cannot enter the hall.

Please bring your own mug so that we can reduce the amount of single use plastic

All entrants must download a full route description from C&D LDWA Website, print it and take it to the event. These will be available to download from this page from 14/4/2024

Entry is limited to 200 people. No more than 99 entries will be accepted for each of the walking/running options for safety reasons.

The full rules and notes can be downloaded by clicking Here. You MUST read them before you enter the event.

 Route descriptions and gpx files will be available from this page from the 14th April 2024, after they have been tested on the marshals walk.

This is likely to be the first event of a new South West Triple Challenge. Further details about this development and about the event in general will be found soon on the Cornwall and Devon Long Distance Walking Association website
