We have a superb location for this event, set at Holwell Down, close to the famous Hound Tor and Haytor plus the Dartmoor village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor.

Set in the heart of Dartmoor it means that you are straight onto the trails just the way we like it. Dartmoor in February can be a tough area to be, along with the routes taking in some tough, challenging hills and full speed decents.

As usual there are four distances on offer. All routes start and finish at the main field at Holwell Down
