The Great Escape 
A Long half-marathon starting from Princetown in the heart of the Moor, the route takes in the last 15.5 miles of THE CROSSING, with big, wide open spaces. Many have tried escaping the Prison at Princetown and, because of its remoteness, have been recaptured. 

A fully marked and marshalled course. The race will include 2 water stops with light bites only, due to the remoteness of the course and terrain. 

The route crosses the head of the Erme Valley and traverses the Erme canyons, with some interesting moorland vistas along the Abbots Way before the long descent into Ivybridge. A real taste of Dartmoor trail running. 

Start time 11:30am. 

Time limit 4.5 hours. 

Bespoke medal to all finishers.
