DARTMOOR WAY GRANITE 50
A 50-mile race to complement the Dartmoor Way Full Circle 100 mile event. The DW Granite 50 skirts the eastern section of the Moor and crosses several sections of open moorland.
The race begins in Scoriton on the High Moorland link section, in the South of the moor. From here it follows the waymarked trail south and then in a gradually Northern direction towards Bovey Tracey, Manaton, Moretonhampstead, Chagford and onto the finish in Okehampton.
The Dartmoor Way 50, is a tough challenge. It’s 51 miles and although just over half the distance of the 100, it’s a serious undertaking. The DW50 is not an easy race at all.. Its’s not a walk in the park. It’s a long run in the National Park..! It is the equivalent of running two marathons, over sometimes quite rugged terrain in parts and with over 2000 metres of ascent. Experience of running trail marathons is a minimum requirement for this event.
Race Start time of 8am on Saturday 13th November from Scoriton in the South of the Moor. There is a maximum time allowance of 16 hours.
Over 2000m of ascent with 3 full checkpoints offering hot food and refreshments.
Free Parking Changing and shower facilities on-site at the OCRA Pavilion – Event HQ.
