hot foot to Fur tor
Supposedly Dartmoor's most remote tor, Fur Tor is a mere 45 minute pad from Bagtor Gate. After a bit of an incline up to Lynch Tor it's pretty much flat but wiry little heathery things meant on with the mincers for nearly all of the run.
Fur Tor's quite a handsome pile of granite with lovely views on a good day. There were signs up warning of nesting ravens which made for a handy 'tripod'. To the pedants (of which we have a few down here....hi Shamus!) this should be Vur Tor although few, if any, of the names which appear on the OS are original or authentic. In fact, 'Vur Tor' is just the second to last name in a long line.
This was the longest bf/mincers run to date - everything ok so far although the balls of my feet took a battering on the army track.
