DARTMOOR WAY 100 - The Full Circle

Now in it's 2nd year..... The Dartmoor Way 100, the ‘The Full Circle‘ is the first complete circumnavigation of Dartmoor ever to have taken place as an official race event.

The Race will follow the freshly waymarked Dartmoor Way walking route and is the only landlocked 100 mile race in South West England.

THE ROUTE skirts the periphery of the whole of the northern and southern sections of the Moor, taking in many wild and ancient tracks and trails. The route also includes the more well-known landmarks, and many of the idyllic moorland villages, following woodland and riverside trails, green lanes and quiet country lanes.

THE RACE is a continuous non-stop event. Competitors must visit the 7 indoor checkpoints to complete the event successfully.

CHECKPOINTS are village or church halls, where you will be well fed, watered and encouraged onwards by our fantastic team of Puretrail crew members.. always enthusiastic and exceptionally knowledgeable. As they are all runners themselves they know the craic..

TIME LIMIT - 36 hours is the maximum time allowed to complete the race. It may seem generous, but don’t be fooled, there is over 4000m of ascent to contend with, over sometimes rocky, tussocky, boggy, typical Dartmoor terrain. The event is taking place in late Autumn and as such the weather can be unpredictable with cold and rain, possibly snow. The conditions can be harsh at times, and there will be a night section to contend with. We expect the first runners to be back in Okehampton in around 22-24 hours, but we think most runners will take 24-30 hours to complete.

START is at Midday on Friday 4th November from the OCRA Pavilion in the Park, Mill Road, Okehampton, Devon, EX20 1GE (Event HQ)

THE DARTMOOR WAY 100 requires competitors to be physically fit with ultra distance running experience and with the ability to navigate using pre-marked DW100 maps, GPS, GPX files or a combination of all of these.

COMPETITORS will be monitored throughout the event using GPS tracking devices. This is a safety requirement but also allows friends and family to view their progress online throughout the race.

Bespoke Finisher’s medal on completion of the race. Also bespoke trophies to First, Second and Third males and females, plus Age category prizes.

Compulsory Race Kit is required and the full kit-list can be found on the webpage
