The Granite Tors Marathon route will be fully marked and marshalled, with 4 Aid Stations/Water stops with food and refreshments.

The Great Escape 
A half-marathon starting from Princetown in the heart of the Moor, the route takes in the last 13.1 miles of THE CROSSING, with big, wide open spaces. Many have tried escaping the Prison at Princetown and, because of its remoteness, have been recaptured. 

A fully marked and marshalled course, with 2 Aid Stations/Water stops with food and refreshments.

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 South Brent. A real taste of Dartmoor trail running. 

Start time 11:30am. 

Time limit 4 hours. 

Bespoke medal to all finishers.
