The magical Dartmoor National Park is home to this stunning trail running event. Starting in the heart of Dartmoor, just outside Widecombe-in-the-Moor, you will get to experience everything Dartmoor has to offer.

You’ll be taking on numerous Tors, river crossings (depending on your chosen distance), as well as visiting Dartmoor favourites such as Bellever Woods, Hexworthy, Holne Woods and Holne Chase. With lots of hills, rivers and woodlands along the way this is a classic and a perfect destination for trail running lovers.

This is our only event that is not canicross friendly.

Please also make a note of your briefing time and ensure you attend the briefing.

Both the number and the timing chip have to be worn at all times during the event.

Regarding training weekends, no signage will be provided, as all runs will be guided.
