Following a period of uncertainty the good news is that the Newnham 90 event will go ahead as planned on 22-23rd September.
The Newnham 90 will will be, perhaps obviously, 90km long. Using a blend of Newnham World Cup courses, neighbouring forest, moorland, quarries and bridleways and promising 90km of off road pleasure and pain. The route will involve 1 loop around 25km of the Newnham Estate, 10km of nearby forest and another 54km on the beautiful and tough terrain of Dartmoor on a series of recognised bridle paths with around 1km of riding on quiet country roads connecting these three areas. There will also be a 45km route option.
For the evening entertianment there will be live music lined up and also a climbing competition (on one of those rolling walls), pasta party, bar and other things to entertain. We are keen to get people there to camp on site and register on the Saturday so they are ready for the necessary early start on Sunday.
Organiser Martyn Salt told us: “The news is that small parts of Dartmoor re-opened yesterday which is
obviously a good sign and I am confident the event will be able go ahead”.
