What you need to know

This is the fifth LM42. Underhyped and aimed solely at those with good mountain running and 'hill skills'..this is no tame trail race! You will be going over mountain summits, on mountain trails, so good basic navigational skills will be required.

Expect a very tough mountain trail route including the summits of Helvellyn and High Street, on a variety of terrain but predominately Lakeland mountain paths. Total distance will be around 42 miles with several thousand feet of ascent. An early dawn start will set you up for a daylight completion if you can!

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.
