Join University partners DSRTP on their annual Postbridge Challenge, a 10 or 12 mile circular walk or the Family Friendly Adventure (approximately 4 miles) from Bellever Forest car park.
The 10 mile circular route goes from Bellever Forest car park to Postbridge, Braddon Lake and Broad Down. Depending on conditions, there should then be an option to extend the route via the waterfall and Browns House, before rejoining the main route to Lower White Tor, Higher White Tor, Longaford Tor, Powdermills Chimney, Lakehead Hill, Bellever Tor, Laughter Tor, and back to Bellever.
The Family Adventure is an approximate 4 mile circular route, with checkpoints/stamps to collect on route. This will also go from Bellever Forest car park, heading towards Lakehead Hill, past Bellever Tor, Laughter Tor, and then back to Bellever.
The walk starts at 09:00 with no walkers allowed to start after 09:15 (Family Friendly Adventure starting between 09:00 and 10:00). The cut off time for the finish is 16:00. There will also be a cut off time at the forest corner (grid ref: GR643772) of 14:30 when all walkers, arriving after this time, will be asked to make their way to Bellever Forest car park via the footpath to the east through the forest, then the road.
The map used for the information and preparation of this walk is Ordnance Survey Outdoor Leisure Number 28, Map of Dartmoor North & South, 1:25,000.
Due to the fact that some of the walk is on open moor, at least one of the team must have basic navigation, compass and map reading skills.
This event is open to all. Entry is a minimum donation of £12.50 per person for walk, or £12.50 for a family group taking part in the Family Friendly Adventure. The donation cost includes a certificate.

Closing date for entries: 20 February 2018.
All proceeds are in aid of Dartmoor Search & Rescue Team Plymouth (registered charity number 1106095), patron: Professor Iain Stewart MBE.
