After the imposed COVID-19, University partners Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Plymouth (DSRTP) are offering the unique opportunity to enter this bespoke event - how far will YOU escape from HMP Dartmoor?!

This is a major fundraising event for DSRTP: 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. Essential funds raised will help DSRTP to ensure the 24/7/365 safety of all members of the public in Dartmoor, Plymouth and the surrounding areas.

There are two categories: a 12 hour Delinquent and 24 hour Felon. Both events start at noon sharp and you plan your own route and take it at your own pace! Can you beat the wardens or their distance? This year there will be wardens entered into each event!

The minimum age for participants is 18 years. 

Please see the above links for full details or contact DSRTP via their webform for any queries.

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.
