Booking Event...

Dartmoor in a Day is a challenge event rather than just a race, so cut off times at our final checkpoint will be very generous. Transport to the end of the event will be available if anyone doesn’t manage to complete the distance.

The route is approximately 50 km (30 miles) and almost entirely off road. The 30 km challenge option is achievable by anyone with a good level of walking fitness but the 50 km should not be underestimated! You will however be supported by qualified Mountain Leaders with extensive experience and knowledge of Dartmoor, who will assist you with navigation (and act as pacers for the runners).

For those that fancy a greater challenge, then why not join us for a run across the same route? Dartmoor in a Day Ultra. Again you will be supported by experienced runners who are also qualified Mountain Leaders. We recommend that you prepare well for this; having run a marathon or two, or some trail runs over 20 miles will set you up well.

The role of our leaders is to act as mobile marshals and to assist you with route choice between checkpoints. You are welcome to walk or run with them for all or part of your journey but there is no obligation to do so.

We will have checkpoints at two road crossings during the route where refreshment will be available. These will be at Postbridge and Combestone Tor.

 

Both events will finish at Ivybridge Rugby Club where you will collect your finishers medal. Food and drink will also be available here.

Logistics can sometimes be an issue on these types of event so there will be a coach shuttle service available. This will allow you to complete your journey with your car waiting for you at the end. Cost for this will be £15/£12 for the journey from Ivybridge to the event start at Okehampton. Spaces will be limited and must be booked in advance. The departure time is likely to be about 6am for the 50 km. Shuttle bus for 30 km challenge will be 9am. All coaches will leave from Ivybridge Rugby Club.

We are happy to have under 18s on these challenges, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
