The route starts at Okehampton, passes through Postbridge and finishes in Ivybridge. Highlights along the way include the East Okement valley, Hangingstone Hill, the East Dart valley, Bellever Tor, West Dart stepping stones, Ryder’s Hill, a clapper bridge over the upper Avon river, the Dartmoor Volcano and stunning views along the Erme valley and out to sea.

The 30km challenge starts in Postbridge and follows the rest of the 50 km route from here.

The route is mainly across wild areas of open moor.

Maps can be downloaded for use with the Outdoor Active app but we recommend using this alongside OL 28 Dartmoor (1:25,000) or BMC Dartmoor (1:40,000) maps. A GPX file will also be available for those that would like to use GPS. Full information on mandatory and suggested kit will be in your participant handbooks.

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/running fitness but the 50 km should not be underestimated! Both distances are open to runners and walkers.

You will be supported by qualified Mountain Leaders with extensive experience and knowledge of Dartmoor, who will assist you with navigation. Their role is to act as mobile marshals and to assist you with route choice between checkpoints. There will also provide First Aid safety cover in remote areas out on the course. 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 Community College 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 as an optional extra. This will take you to the start before the event.

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 Community College.

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