    That's challenging! Very interesting, great location and a good cause.
    You can fool some of the people all of the time. Concentrate on those people.
  • Sounds brutal, this could certainly challenge the Fred Whitton for the toughest sportive in the country.
    The Dartmoor Brewery is fantastic, the only thing pulling me through would be the thought of a pint of Jail Ale at the end.

    There will be a free pint of Dartmoor Legend waiting for you at the finish.. Fantastic Cask Ale :)


  • Unfortunately the Dartmoor Legend had to be postponed due to the Covid epidemic. But it's back for 2022 and will be taking place on Sat 9th July. See sportivaevents.co.uk/events/dartmoor-legend .

    I've done the Dartmoor Classic in the past, and thought that wasn't far off the Fred; I think this would be another level. And that's why I'm out... ;)
