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.

Fully marked course with no navigation needed.

This event is our only event that is not canicross friendly.

Camping is available in the HQ field on Friday and Saturday nights before and after the event.
