The Delicious Drake’s Trail

Date & Location

Yelverton, Devon

Organiser’s Description

A trail run with a difference - this new event takes food-loving trail runners on a gastronomic tour of the western fringes of Dartmoor, between Yelverton and Tavistock. The trail starts at Buckland Abbey, the former home of Sir Frances Drake, and finishes at the Moorland Garden Hotel near Yelverton, covering 17 miles of scenic moorland, farmland, country lanes and trails. And along the way, a mouth watering variety of locally produced food and drink tasters - beers, wines, savouries, sweets - will be on offer. A shorter 10 mile route stops in Whitchurch and includes transport to the finish.
