Image: Dartmoor Highground racingThe Dartmoor 50 Ultra Trail running race, Dartmoor Marathon and Yes Tor Hill Race are fully signed trail running races with great support and a distinctly wild and at times fell running feel,  taking in the highest points in the south of England and some of the lesser visited tops.
