The Two Moors Ultra Exmoor to Dartmoor 100 miles  (cut off 36 hours)

ITRA certified. This race offers 5 UTMB points

NB: Includes a relay option of up to 8 people, Exmoor to Drogo 60 miles, Plus the Lynmouth to Knowstone Marathon, Castle 2 Coast (50 miles) and Castle Drogo Ultra (33 miles)

This epic ultra starts in Lynmouth and finishes in Ivybridge. You will run through the night and any one who finishes inside 24 hours will receive a special prize! 

We think this is the hidden gem of ultra races on the very under used (mainly due to poor signage) Two Moors Way.

It is a challenging self navigation ultra, crossing two national parks: Exmoor in the north of Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor National Park, following the recently relaunched Two Moors Way. 

Despite the minimal ascent (just over 11,000 ft) only experienced ultra runners or participants with good navigation skills shoud enter.

Even in September, good weather can not be assured and parts of the route can become boggy.
