For this year’s Dartmoor BigDayOut (24th August) we’ve decided to include Recce Weekenders as a prelude to the race itself. The idea is to give you a taste of The Crossing Ultramarathon, and Great Escape Long half-marathon before Race Day in a relaxed, convivial atmosphere. 

You do not have to have entered the races to attend the Puretrail Dartmoor Weekender.

** This is not a race, it’s a Dartmoor running adventure and as such, we are primarily getting ‘out there’ to have a good time and enjoy the stunning natural environment on our doorstep **

Our first Puretrail Dartmoor Weekender is set for the 20th/21st April, where we will be guiding a limited number of runners along the 36.5 mile route from Belstone to Ivybridge. It’ll be at a sociable pace, and all abilities are welcomed. We will be following the entire route of the Puretrail Dartmoor Crossing and Great Escape, new routes for 2019.

Included in this mini-Adventure are bus transfers from Ivybridge Rugby Club to our Belstone starting point and overnight bunkhouse accommodation at the Plume of Feathers, Princetown (at 21 miles) where we can then eat, drink and be merry! 

Your luggage will be transferred from Ivybridge to Princetown and will be there upon your arrival. Your baggage will be transported back to Ivybridge on Sunday for you.

We estimate Day 1 to be approximately 5 hours out on the Moor. Day 2 will encompass the last 15.5 miles of the Crossing route and the Great Escape in it’s entirety..! Downhill the second day as we start at 400m above sea level.and finish at 100m! It isn't testing in ascent throughout the whole route.

Coach leaves Ivybridge 10am Saturday with running starting 11-11:15am and Sunday running commences at 10am.

A mandatory kit-list is required and will be checked before departing Ivybridge Rugby Club. Further information can be found at webpage
