Dartmoor Discovery

The race is one week later than its normal time of the first Saturday in June, this is so that it doesn't clash with the four day bank holiday to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

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.

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 1/2 hour cut off time.
