You’ll walk through inspiring, stunning and remote areas of the national park, taking away some truly amazing memories. This event is a test of your navigation and long distance walking abilities. The route is not way-marked but a route description and GPX files are available for you plot the route onto your Ordnance Survey map (Exmoor OL9 1:25000) and follow on a suitable GPS device.

There are 6 checkpoints in total. 3 on the first half, 1 at half way and 2 on the second half.
On arrival at our halfway checkpoint (4) you will be greeted with a smile and a nice brew courtesy of our friends at Miles Tea. In order to continue on to the full route you must be leaving this stop by 14:00. If you’re finishing here transport is available back to the event base.
At registration you will be given a “tally”, which is a piece of waterproof paper you must attach to your rucksack. Walkers must stop, have their tallies punched and have their number recorded by the marshals at each check point. As part of our duty of care these tally numbers are radioed back to the centre to record your progress. Your tally must also be submitted to the registration desk upon your return. This is how we know you are safe and accounted for. Exmoor Search and Rescue will be present at various locations should they be required.
We recommend you use the Ordnance Survey Explorer 1:25000 map sheet: Exmoor OL9. Clothing – We advise that long trousers are worn to prevent rashes from plants such as Gorse and Heather but this is up to you to decide.
