Organiser's Description

This is a 35 mile Dartmoor crossing with a difference. You can choose between a self navigation ultra from Drewsteignton to Ivybridge, following the Two Moors Way or a points challenge which follows a similar route but is done in teams or pairs and offers points basd on a points system.

Both routes will be fully supported with a drop bag option and four and three checkpoints respectively, all of which will be fully stocked with food and refreshments. All participants will be fitted with trackers, so our 4X4 teams can monitor your every move.

REGISTRATION/SLEEPOVER/PRE RACE REFRESHMENTS

We have hired Drewsteignton Village Hall for the whole day from 5pm on Friday (open for sleepover). Hot drinks and refreshments will be available here.

Registration opens at 7am. People travelling long distances can also stay overnight on Friday if they bring their own ground mats and sleeping bags.

Our event sponors Kurio Compression will be on hand at the village hall before registration to scan all participants for leggings and calf guards for potential prize winners and for those who want to order a bespoke compression garment. They will also be at the finish at Ivybridge in case you miss your scan. Each scan takes around 3 minutes so if you plan to win a prize, please turn up early enough to get you scan. The bus from Ivybridge will arrive around 8.15am so if you plan to catch the bus please, make sure you get your scan at the end.

Post event food can also be had at Scorriton Village Hall.

Castle Drogo to Ivybridge

From the castle you will descend in to the Teign Valley, skirting the river towards Chagford, where you will pick up signs for Frenchbeer and head towards Yardworthy farm, where the Two Moors Way splits in to an Eastern and Western section, not to be rejoined until mile 19 at Jordon. The Challenge event takes the eastern section, while Ultra racers must take the western route. The western route taken by Ultra racers, will head on to the fringes of Dartmoor towards Fernworthy Reservoir (western route) and follow a cattle trod below Hameldown Ridge (western section). Challenge racers will take the eastern route at the TMW split, crossing farmers fields to Lettaford and Checkpoint 1 on the A3212. The path rejoins at Widdecombe and runners/walkers head back on lovely hidden river paths, heading for Dr Blackalls Drive and to New Bridge.

From Scorriton (the final checkpoint), it’s a tough climb up Puper’s Hill, crossing the Avon via a clapper bridge if you’ve picked up the correct path. The run in to Ivybridge is straight forward, following the Puffer Billy trail (old tramway) all the way to Ivybridge, where our fuel station and finish for the Two Moors Ultra awaits, at the train station.
