This is a classic Devon self nav 50k ultra and points Challenge from the start of The Two Moors Way to the village hall in Knowstone (our race HQ) in Mid Devon. The route, which is mainly off road, crossses Exmoor in to Mid Devon and follows the route originally trailblazed by the late Joe Turner in the last century.

The event will be fully supported by our first rate 4X4 Rapid Response Team and friends and family will be able to monitor participants 24/7 in real time. The route covers the first third of the Two Moors Way, crossing moorland, farmer's fields, river valleys and green lanes, and is connected to our other popular Race With No Name, which completes the final section.

Finishers will be able to purchase a personalised mounted pic and commemorative epic poem of the Two Moors Way, which slots together with The Race With No Name to form the whole. The epic is a tribute to Joe Turner, who was responsible for opening the route in 1976 and passed away in 2004, as well as to our runners.
