Caddihoe Chase Final Details (Updated 1st September)
Please check for any further update prior to the event, in September.
Day 1, Saturday, is the South-West Long Distance Championship event (Level B) with start times 1200 to 1500.
On Day 2 (Level B), chasing start times will be computed on the basis of Day 1 running times, with a base-time of 10.00.
Age-class Caddihoe trophies will be awarded on Sunday based on the combined results.
The terrain is a mixture of open/ semi open areas with some bracken, mixed woodland, steep hillsides with rock features and former mining terrain. The area has been used on several occasions for this event, the last time being in 2005.
Rough camping should be available at the edge of the parking field, £5 per tent.
For those who prefer a roof over their head you can book a place on the floor in a village hall (distance 2km and open from about 5pm). Unfortunately it has no showers but there are public swimming pools at Tavistock (closes 4pm) or newly built Plymouth Life Centre - (closes 6pm). £5 per person.
Please add accommodation bookings to your online booking or contact the organiser direct.
