Route information
The Dartmoor Crossing
An aspirational baby ultra, this is perfect for runners who are thinking of attempting to do a full Ultra soon. The route will take runners through open moorland and two of the Dartmoor's 600m summits.
This course is far from easy but it will totally be worth it by the finish, participants will experience the wilderness of the High Moor and the beauty of the periphery. There are plenty of challenging ascents and descents, and this route also allows racers to visit the 3 moorland villages of Belstone, Postbridge, and Ivybridge.
The Great Escape
The Great Escape route takes on the last 15.5 miles of The Crossing, a long half marathon starting from Princetown in the heart of the moor. Immerse yourself in nature as you cross the head of the Erme Valley and traverse the Erme Canyons. Countless breathtaking views and a real taste of Dartmoor trail running.
