Join University partners Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Plymouth for their major new fundraising event: an endurance race where entrants determine their own route from the start point with the aim to achieve the furthest distance (as the crow flies) in a given time.
There are two categories: a 12 hour 'Delinquent' and 24 hour 'Felon' cut off. While individual route choice is very much a part of the event it will be controlled in terms of restricted to only using public rights of way so no tunnelling or building gliders! Escapees are also restricted from entering any bird nesting areas.
Although this event will attract experienced ultra race runners from across the UK, individuals and teams are invited to participate as a personal challenge.
Medals and t-shirts for all participants will be given. As this is an event to raise funds for Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Plymouth (registered charity) there will be no main prizes offered. We pride the event on catering for everybody and in past years this ethos has seen a very positive and encouraging feel to the event, producing some great camaraderie in escape attempts!
New for this year there will be wardens entered into each event!! Can you beat their distance??!

All proceeds are in aid of the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Plymouth (registered charity number 1106095). DSRTP are grateful to the management of HMP Dartmoor who have given them extraordinary co-operation enabling the race to be managed, and started from within the grounds of the legendary prison.
