We have wonderfully stocked checkpoints, that include a large range of products.

One of our partners UCAN Uk supply us with our hydration and energy powders. They also supply gels and bars if that is the option you prefer.

UCAN Uk products are 100% natural and completely sugar free - You do not need sugar and the drop off when you are running. These products are healthier, far better at delivery hydration and energy and you don't get the sugar low.

They use a 'SuperStarch' which is a complex carbohydrate (derived from non-GMO corn) that uniquely stabilises blood sugar levels.

At our checkpoints you will find a good range of items such as (including vegan options):-

Water (Vegan)
Squash - Blackcurrant & Orange (Vegan)
UCAN Hydrate Electrolyte Drink Mix (Hydration) - UCAN Hydrate contains five essential electrolytes, has no sugar and zero calories, and is naturally sweetened with Stevia. (Vegan)

UCAN Energy Bars - UCAN bars are the only bar powered by SuperStarch/ Livsteady for long-lasting energy that sustains blood sugar levels. They will keep you fuelled and feeling good. (Vegan)

A beautiful trail running challenge taking on part of the ancient Dartmoor Way route, which circles Dartmoor National Park.

This 100k trail running adventure will test the toughest of trail runners. You will get to split the moors in half and travel over the High Moorland Link path right across the centre of the moors.

Starting at the ground of Ivybridge Rugby Club, we are an easy reach of the Dartmoor Way trail. We follow the trail in an anti-clockwise direction

There is a 15 hour cut-off with three checkpoints/feed stations along the way. These are positioned roughly 25k apart. They will be well stocked with everything you require. Supplies from UCAN UK will be available, hydration and energy bars and gels, along with carbs and other snacks and drinks.

Starting at 6am on Saturday 9th December. The cut off is 9pm on  Saturday 9th December. There is a 15 hour cut off.

This is an unmarked course, a lot of the course is way marked, but we also leave the main route in some areas. You must have the route downloaded on your phone or gpx device.

Support crews are allowed and we actively encourage you to meet your crews as often as possible around the course at suitable locations, as well as at the checkpoints.

Support crews are allowed to bring food and drink as well as any spare kit that might be needed. Support crews are not allowed to join the runners on the run itself.

GPS live tracker included, your friends and family will be able to track and see your progress around this stunning 100k route.
