Meanwhile, Plymouth Harriers will hold their rearranged Six Moor Mile race on Saturday.

The event should have been held on July 29, but was postponed after the Met Office issued a severe weather warning.

Saturday’s run will begin at 4pm. The off-road race starts and finishes on Dartmoor at Yelverton and takes runners around the Maristow Estate.

Organisers are also going to hold a half-a-mile kids’ race at 4.15pm for youngsters aged between four and 16.
