Our Children & Young Adult Services Manager, Lee Tobin, has set himself an incredible target this year and is competing in several running races including the challenging Snowdon24, in aid of Pete’s Dragon.

Suicide Bereavement has been described as ‘grief with the volume turned up’; it’s effects on families, communities and society, as a whole, are devastating and tragic.

Everyone affected by suicide will have a unique experience through the grieving process and it is extremely important that timely and appropriate support is available. Pete’s Dragons provides a bespoke service to anyone in Devon who has been affected in this way.

The events are:
Burrator Noir 10k

2nd November 2019

The Burrator Noir 10K is a road race. Stunning location and tough trails or a flat road run perfect for a night PB.
Cockington Christmas Caper

The Cockington Christmas Caper has been organised every year since 2004 by local Christian Charity, The Barnabas Sports Trust. The race is approximately 7 1/2 miles, in and around the beautiful Cockington Country Park. It is an off road race on trails, footpaths and cycle paths, the route is very hilly and often muddy.

“I like to keep fit on a weekly basis and felt that I needed a challenge for the year. I am using the four events running up to Snowdon24 as training and looking forward to raising money for such a worthwhile cause. I enjoy pushing myself to the limit and Snowdon24 will be an ultimate goal and the opportunity to do something that will test my body physically and mentally.”

Snowdon24

New for 2020, the Snowdon24 will be the ultimate endurance event.

Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa, is the highest mountain in England and Wales and peaks at an impressive 1,085 m (3,560 feet). Starting and finishing at the foot of this iconic mountain, you will be challenged either as an individual, or part of a team to ascend and descend Snowdon as many times as possible in 24 hours.

Based in Llanberis village the route will take you up and down the Llanberis Path; a 15km out and back route taking you past the legendary Half Way House, Allt Moses, Clogwyn Bridge and ultimately on to the summit before heading back down.

The challenge is to complete as many ascents and descents as possible within the 24 hour period. The winners of the event will be the athletes who complete as many of these as possible. In the event of a tiebreak on the number of ascents and descents the quickest will win!
