WHEN WILL I GET MY RACE NUMBER AND CHIP TIMING CHIP?
These will both be provided at registration and your race number will contain your electronic timing device. You will be given an envelope containing the race number and a Tyvek tag correlating to your race number. You can attach the Tyvek tag to your bag when you do your bag drop, though you will need to provide your race number after the race in order to retrieve it, so please hold on to it.

Travel

WILL THERE BE PARKING AND WHAT WILL THIS COST?
The car parking spaces at the Bewl Water Visitor Centre are very reasonably priced for both competitors and spectators, the fee for all-day parking will just be £2.00 per car and there are plenty of car parking spaces available, so please bring change as this is payable at the main entrance to the Visitor Centre.

Kit List

WHAT KIT WILL I NEED ON THE DAY?
This is predominantly a trail run but it includes sections along the roads on quiet country lanes so it is advisable to wear trail shoes as conditions underfoot can be muddy on stretches. I would also advise taking a hydration pack or bottles so you can maintain your electrolyte intake throughout the race and take gels and food to assist you with your race nutrition too. Some areas are quite exposed too so a cap, gloves, and lightweight jacket might come in handy too.

The Two Moors Ultra Marathon Exmoor to Dartmoor:
This epic Two Moors Ultra Exmoor to Dartmoor passes through classically Devon countryside, starting in Lynmouth and finishing in Ivybridge. You will run through the night and anyone who finishes inside 24 hours will receive a special prize!

This is a very challenging self navigation ultra, crossing two national parks: Exmoor in the north of Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor National Park, following the recently relaunched Two Moors Way. Despite the minimal ascent, only experienced ultra runners or participants with good navigation skills will be accepted. Even in September, good weather can not be assured and parts of the route can become boggy. We think you will wonder why you have never done this before.

Castle 2 Coast:
Dont be fooled, this is no baby ultra! Its a fully fledged Dartmoor Crossing, following the Two Moors Way, which will require self navigation skills.

Lynmouth Marathon:
This follows the Two Moors Way from Lynmouth seafront to the village of Knowstone in Mid Devon. Along the way you will cross Exmoor and Mid Devon on the original Two Moors Way and will probably wonder why youve never done this before!

Drogo Ultra (35 miles):
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September but finishes in Ivybrdge instead of Wembury.

With great success from lasts year inaugural Dark Peaks 30 Ultra Trail, and some fantastic feedback from competitors.
Being described by the elite field of runners as one of the best but hardest 30 mile ultras they have ever raced and truly a classic in the making. We where excited to bring this event back!!!

Starting from the village of Hope, This Ultra will take you into the heart of the Peak District national park, where the total elevation will be well over 7000ft!!

Starting off on the iconic Pennine way you will soon be greeted with some brutal climbs, high ridge lines and fast technical descending, with the time of year and the nature of this course this one will surely push you to your limits!!
