Further information

You can enter the 35 mile Race With No Name, which is a challenging self navigation ultra, crossing Dartmoor National Park, with minimal ascent. Or you can enter the Challenge Event, which is based on a points system and encourages pacing and if you do it in teams or as a solo event, a degree of team work. rnThere are 3UTMB points up for grabs for the Race event. Both formats will be fully supported with bag drops points and three checkpoints, two of which will be fully stocked with food and refreshments. rnAll participants will be fitted with trackers so our bespoke 4x4 teams can monitor your every move. This is our own favourite Dartmoor Crossing route, based on last year's Drogo Ultra.rnrnNicki Spinks (running legend) on the 2018 Drogo Ultra - now The Race with No Name, "Yes I really enjoyed the Drogo Ultra. As soon as I started running I really didn't feel I should be doing the 50 - I hadn't considered the timings, my tired legs, the navigation and so soon decided to change. I found navigation hard but had hoped to use my watch but not being a pro at it I hadn't downloaded the route properly so couldn't! It was back to map and compass which wasn't good enough in the fiddly valleys. rnrnThank you ever so much for allowing me to change as a dnf wouldn't have been pleasant. Please try and keep that flexibility in as the events grow as I think it was lovely. The Drogo route was really nice too until that disused tramway but it got me to the finish quicker than I expected! It worked really well with the timings and my family to finish at Ivybridge. That's why I think the Drogo is a really good race - nice distance, nice route and starts/finishes at a sociable time!"
