Big Day Out - The Crossing & The Great Escape

Ivybridge, Devon

Ivybridge Rugby Football Club, Cross-in-Hand, Filham, Ivybridge, UK

Sat 14th August 2021 - Sat 21st August 2021

Organiser's Description

The Crossing was the first pureTRAIL ultra, originally 34 miles. We’ve increased the distance to 36.5 miles for 2019, with a new finish line and Event Centre at the Ivybridge Rugby Club. The Crossing is a tip-toe into ultra-distance running. But it’s far from easy. Experience the wilderness of the High Moor, the beauty of the periphery. Visiting the moorland villages of Belstone (start), Postbridge, Princetown, and Ivybridge, and includes just 900m of ascent. Experience the wilderness of Dartmoor with a fully marked and marshalled route. Now in its 4th year.

The Great Escape starts from Princetown in the heart of the Moor, and takes in the last 15.5 miles of The Crossing, with its big wide open spaces, and traverses a remote moorland wilderness along the Abbot’s Way. It’s a downhill route with a few surprisingly technical uphills. The route crosses the head of the Erme Valley and traverses the Erme canyons, with some interesting moorland vistas along the Abbots Way, before the long descent into Ivybridge. A real taste of Dartmoor trail running.
