THE "NIGEL JENKINS ROUND"
On New Years Eve 1999 Nigel Jennkins a local fell runner started out on his round of
Dartmoor. His plan was to get back to the in Meavy to enjoy the New Year Celebrations. His round started and ended at the top of Sheepstor and circled Dartmoor via the following tops:- Steepstor, Sharpitor, Ingra Tor, Pew Tor, Cox Tor, Standon Hill, Ger Tor, Brat Tor, Branscombe's Loaf, High Willhays, Oke Tor, Cosdon Beacon, Rippator, Thornworthy Tor, Hameldown Tor, Hameldown Beacon, Wind Tor, Rowden Ball, Sharp Tor, Pupers Hill, Corringdon Ball, Butterdown Hill, Western Beacon, Hillson's House, Penn Beacon, Trowlesworthy Tor, Gutter Tor and Sheepstor. Royal Oak
His time for the run was 18 hours and 3 minutes.
Currently as far as I know the Round has been completed just twice since by two members of Drake Hash House Harriers.
