Who is it for?

This event will appeal to people with a sense of adventure, who are looking for a scenic and runnable way to cross Dartmoor at any time of year. It’s also ideal for the first time ultra runner and those of you who want to do a Dartmoor Crossing with excellent. support, safety crews, loads of refreshments on route with 3 Checkpoints and 24/7 monitoring.That’s because we provide all our runners with trackers. This is for people who can’t remember the name of races because they’ve done so many!

You can enter the 35 mile Race With No Name, which 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 3. There will be 3 checkpoints at Yardworthy Farm/The Challenge Split (mile 8), Widecombe (mile 17) and Scorriton (mile 26). Refreshments will be available at all checkpoints.

There are UTMB points up for grabs for the race event, which will be fully supported with a bag drop at Scorriton Village Hall (just short of the marathon point).

Or you can enter the Challenge Event, which is a points system following the Two Moors Way to Ivybridge via the eastern route.

You can enter the 35 mile Drogo Ultra race, which is a challenging self-navigation ultra, crossing Dartmoor National Park, with minimal ascent. Even in October, good weather cannot be assured and parts of the route can become boggy.

Or you can enter the Challenge Event, which is based on a points system and encourages pacing and if you do it in teams or as a solo event, a degree of team work.

There are 2 to 3 UTMB points up for grabs for the Race event.Both formats will be fully supported with bag drops points and three checkpoints, two of which will be fully stocked with food and refreshments. All participants will be fitted with trackers so our bespoke 4X4 teams can monitor your every move.

“The day was fantastic. I loved the course and everyone without exception on the event was helpful and friendly, which really heped to make the day. Excellent."

(2019 participant)

Nicki Spinks (running legend) on the 2018 Race with No Name, “Yes I really enjoyed the Drogo Ultra. The Drogo route was really nice too until that disused tramway but it got me to the finish quicker than I expected! It worked really well with the timings and my family to finish at Ivybridge. I think the Drogo is a really good race - nice distance, nice route and starts/finishes at a sociable time!”
