Route information
Starts at the beginning of The Two Moors Way as it follows this route throughout.
The course will be largely off-road and crosses Exmoor into Mid-Devon. First tracked out by the late Joe Turner, this is a truly an epic event to be part of.
Please be aware, this is a completely self-navigated route covering the first third of the Two Moors Way and connected to Wild Running's popular 'Race with No Name.'
There will be a first rate 4x4 response team on hand at all times should anything go wrong.
The Challenge
The Challenge route is exactly the same as the Ultra, however it includes a #PacePerfect points system. These points will be awarded upon arrival at each checkpoint, as well as for every team that is behind you and how close you are to the hour. Team sizes can range from 2 - 8.
