NEW FOR 2021: We have a new finish and Race HQ at Princetown Community Centre. This will add approximately 200 yards to the distance but we think you'll agree it will be worth it. We'll have our own race village with camping for tents and motorhomes, the Friday night pasta party will be back and of course the legendary Saturday night disco. All this and more at our wonderful new Race HQ.
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 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.
