50 Kit List

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

This 50 mile 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.

There is a 15 hour cut-off with plenty of feed stations along the way.

Starting at 6am on Saturday 20th August, it will be nice and light with hopefully some nice weather. The cut off is 9pm on  Saturday 20th August. That is a very generous 15 hour cut off.

This is an unmarked course, but it is way-marked the entire route, so it will be very easy to follow, just stick to the path!

Support crews allowed!

GPS live tracker included.

Additional Info

Number & Timing Chip

For our events, numbers and timing chips are sent to runners in the post approximately 2-4 weeks before the event. Please ensure your address is up to date on the system you used to register. If you enter the event at the last minute, you will be able to collect your bib and timing chip on the day.

Please make a note of your registration time for the distance you selected and make sure you arrive giving yourself enough time to register.

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.

You also have the chance to rent GPS tracking units, which enable your friends and family to track you all the way around the course.


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 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.

Self Navigation runs (Dartmoor 100, Dartmoor 50), no signage will be used. Way marks on the national pathways will show the way, along with your gps units.
