Description

Starting from Princetown in the heart of the Moor, the route takes in the last 13.1 miles of THE CROSSING, with big, wide open spaces. Can you 'escape' from the Moor in the time allowed (4 hours)? 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 South Brent. A real taste of Dartmoor trail running. A fully marked and marshalled course with 2 drinks and refuelling stops. In addition, for 2018 we have added a marathon distance but starting from Postbridge and finishing in South Brent. Bespoke medal to all finishers.
