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

With a 50 mile and a 100 mile option this two day trail running adventure will test the toughest of trail runners.

Those choosing the 50 mile option get to split the moors in half and come over the High Moorland Link path right across the centre of the moors.

There is a 36 hour cut-off, runners will start on Saturday 6th February at 06:00 with the cut-off at 18:00 on Sunday 7th February.

There will be plenty of feed stations along the way, and a sleep/quiet zone half way for those that want to grab a few hours sleep. This will be at the Bracken Tor Youth Hostel in Okehampton.

This is an unmarked course, but there are way markers on the whole route, so it will be very easy to follow, just stick to the path!

Numbers and timing chip's are to be collected on the day of the event at registration.

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

Signage

We use a number of signs during our events. Arrow markers are on a hi-viz reflective red with white arrow to mark the direction to be taken.

We also use striped tape, these are placed after any split to reassure you that you are on the correct trail. We also use them along long stretches where no turn off is required or directional arrows needed.

We advise runners to bring a map of the route with them on event day in case of emergencies. You can download the map and print it and you can download GPX files to your device.
