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.

Castle Drogo Half Marathon:
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September

Exmoor to Drogo (60 miles):
Starts alongside the TMU on Saturday September 29th and ends at Drogo Castle. Camping and parking is provided.

Starting from the beautiful village of Langsett, this new and exciting race will twist and wind you through some of the most scenic forest trails in the Peak District National park.

From there you will hit a single track that changes in elevation several times, from the top of this climb you will be greeted to a spectacular technical decent which will land you right into the heart of the Derwent valley.

With gentle rolling tracks along the Derwent water, you will eventually be hit head-on with some tough gritty climbs onto the outer edges of the Derwent valley.

This will lead you to the final climb onto the last ridge before you descend back to the finish for a well-earned cuppa!!!!

Navigation skills essential, lower parts of the course will be marked. A GPX file will be available to download and map of the route will be available on the website to print also the map will be handed out at registration.
