Dartmoor Discovery

Dartmoor Discovery 32 Mile Ultra Marathon

Saturday 8th June 2024 



Hot off the press....the date for DD 2024 can now be confirmed as Saturday 8th June.  An early bird offer will apply; enter in the month of November for £40 affiliated/£42 unaffiliated. From 1 December the entry fee will be £45/£47. We're also increasing our cut-off times by 15 mins (13.1 miles = 2:53; 20 miles = 4:15 and 26.2 miles = 5:30) so there's no reason not to enter!

Race HQ is at Princetown Community Centre. We'll have our own race village again with camping for tents and motorhomes, as well as the Friday night pasta party and of course the legendary Saturday night disco. 

The Dartmoor Discovery, or DD as it's affectionately known, is the UK's longest single lap road ultra marathon. Take a look at the course map HERE

It has gained somewhat of a cult status on the running circuit and is one of those races that runners have to have on their CV.

The race starts and finishes in Princetown. The 32-mile 899 yard course takes you up and down some of the toughest hills that Dartmoor has to offer. There are 10 feeding stations on route, nine of which you can leave your own personal drinks at. A bespoke quality DD medal and technical t-shirt awaits anyone crossing the finish line in under the 6 3/4 hour cut off time.

Please note that headphones are not permitted and anyone caught wearing them during the race will be disqualified!
