Route description
Route description

The routes have been fine tuned to offer a new challenge in the UK for Ultra and Marathon trail running races, taking in the best of Dartmoor on high routes (including Yes Tor at 619m!) without the need for navigational ability, on trail and lesser used paths that give these races a wild 'mountain' aspect that is unique in southern England, and make for a unique Trail Marathon or Ultra.

Directions
The Dartmoor 50 and Marathon venue is in Okehampton, at the OCRA Pavilion, which is in the Okehampton College grounds.

The postcode for the OCRA Pavilion in the Park is EX20 1PW.

OCRA have some signage from the approach roads but the OCRA parking is NOT accessed via the main college entrance.

It is best to turn off East Street at the traffic lights and onto Mill Road, then it is the left fork roughly 250m after this junction, signed to OCRA and with event signage.

We are expecting to use overflow parking which is the main college parking, this will be directed to you if necessary.
