Ascent: 4,000 feet
This is a challenging self navigation ultra, crossing Dartmoor National Park, with minimal ascent. At the 8 mile split at Checkpoint 1 near Yardworthy farm (also the first feed station) you must take the western split, where the Two Moors Way splits in two and rejoins at Widecombe at Checkpoint 2. There will be 3 checkpoints at Yardworthy Farm, Widecombe (mile 17) and Scorriton (mile 26).
From Scorriton It’s a tough climb but you can contour round to the left of Puper’s Hill rather than going up and over the top, 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 the finish awaits, at the train station.
Refreshments will be available at all checkpoints.
