This is a waymarked five mile trail race which has five main rollercoaster hills, all off-road in the beautiful Tamar Trails.

The date for the next Rollercoaster is November 2019.

The challenge is to complete all five of the Dartmoor peaks over 600m starting from the Dartmoor Inn, Lydford, Devon as quickly as possible!

As a walk, it is a nice little test, but as a run, it is a challenge. Short enough to be attacked but long enough to feel the burn! It’s only 1.1 miles there and 1.1 miles back.
