The Dartmoor Crossing

An aspirational baby ultra. It's a tip-toe into ultra-distance running, but it's far from easy. The route crosses open moorland and two of the Dartmoor 600m summits. We’ve procured a new event centre and finish at the Ivybridge Rugby Club for a 33.5-mile race.

A fully marked and marshalled course, with 2 fully stocked Aid Stations, and 3 Water/ light bite stops, with light snacks and refreshments. 

Experience the wilderness of the High Moor, the beauty of the periphery. Visiting the 3 moorland villages of Belstone (start), Postbridge, and Ivybridge (finish) and includes 1,119m of ascent and 1,516m descent, in 33.5 miles.

Start time 9am. 

Time limit 10 hours.

Bespoke medal to all finishers. 

Bespoke event t-shirt can be purchased at any time via the SiEntries system.

Coach transfer from Ivybridge to the start £12

The minimum age for entry is 20 years of age on Raceday.

The Great Escape

A Long half-marathon starting from Princetown in the heart of the Moor. The route takes in the last 15.5 miles of THE CROSSING, with big, wide open spaces and an enduring sense of freedom!

A fully marked and marshalled course. The race will include 2 water stops only, due to the remoteness of the course and terrain. 

The route crosses the head of the Erme Valley and traverses the Erme canyons, with some interesting moorland vistas along the Abbots Way before the long descent into Ivybridge. A real taste of Dartmoor trail running. 

Start time 11:30am. 

Time limit 4.5 hours. 

Bespoke medal to all finishers. 

Bespoke event t-shirts can be purchased at any time via the SiEntries system.

Coach transfer from Ivybridge to the start £12
