About the event

The Race With No Name is back for its fourth year, having won rave reviews this year and last. 

See some of the testimonials about this event (below)

Why No Name?

This is a self-nav Dartmoor Crossing with a difference. The Race With No Name follows the Two Moors Way route (western route).

Who is it for?

This event will appeal to people with a sense of adventure, who are looking for a scenic and runnable way to cross Dartmoor at any time of year. It’s also ideal for the first time ultra runner and those of you who want to do a Dartmoor Crossing with excellent. support, safety crews, loads of refreshments on route with either 3 Checkpoints (Ultra) and 24/7 monitoring.That’s because we provide all our runners with trackers. This is for people who can’t remember the name of races because they’ve done so many!

Entrants need to be 20 at least to enter the Ultra.

You can enter the 35 mile Race With No Name, which is a challenging self navigation ultra, crossing Dartmoor National Park, with minimal ascent. At the 8 mile split at Checkpoint 1 near Yardworthy farm (also the first feed station) you must take the western split, where the Two Moors Way splits in two and rejoins at Widecombe at Checkpoint 2. There will be 3 checkpoints at Yardworthy Farm, Widecombe (mile 17) and Scorriton (mile 26). Refreshments will be available at all checkpoints. 

There are UTMB points up for grabs for the race event, which will be fully supported with a bag drop at Scorriton Village Hall (just short of the marathon point).

  •  UTMB points
  • Gpx files optimised for all the leading watches and devices
