DARTMOOR PRISON BREAK – ULTRA RUNNING EVENT
Save the date – and start planning your escape!
A major new event is being planned by the team – so all adventure / ultra runners out there, please save this date – Saturday October 21st 2017.
This event is a fundraising running event whereby the entrants determine their own route from the start point at HM Prison Dartmoor (Princetown) with the aim to achieve the furthest distance (as the crow flies) in a given time.
There are 2 categories, a 12 hour and 24 hour cut off. Whilst 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 and a very strong recommendation to only use roads with pavements.
Participants will be monitored for the full duration of the event by a GPS tracker device and associated software. This system allows continuous participant tracking and location and the facility for participants to operate an emergency button.
Website, more detail, and registration will be forthcoming before the end of July – watch this space!
