All three routes will pass through key stages including The Tamar Bridge crossing, a long climb from Horsebridge as you re-enter Devon and the famous Strava ‘Top 100’ climb of Rundlestone, known locally as Pork Hill. You can re-fuel at our well stocked and strategically placed food stations along the way, each offering sweet and savoury goodies.

The Extreme route takes on an additional 29 miles of picturesque Dartmoor, passing through the famous village of Widecombe in the Moor and down through the deep valley, crossing The River Dart at Dartmeet (and back up again!).

Plenty of parking and facilities will be available at our Race Village hosted by Plymouth Argyle at their ground Home Park. We are delighted to announce that Dartmoor Brewery will be hosting our main food station at their premises in Princetown, and a free beer will be waiting for you at the finish!
