Are you ready to take on one of the toughest single-day cycling challenges in the UK? Tougher than the Yorkshire Beast, tougher than the long Dragon Ride and much tougher than the Majorca 312!
Princetown is renowned for taking prisoners but the Dartmoor Legend takes none! This epic route is against a pace clock. You will pass through Princetown three times, on each occasion, any rider who falls behind the minimum pace to finish by midnight will be required to retire from the event. GPS trackers mean friends and relatives will be able to ‘dot watch’ and see your progress online during the event. The full distance is a full 200-mile ultra with 18,000ft of climbing.
By popular demand a shorter Dartmoor Legend Leggero and Mezzofondo route have been added which still include many of Dartmoor’s most iconic climbs.
This event is part of Dartmoor Legend Sportives.
The Dartmoor Legend will start from Princetown, the very heart of Dartmoor National Park. All participants must start between 04:00 hrs and 05:00 hrs and are required to finish by midnight. The time limit of 20 hrs (from 4am) is based on an average of 10mph including all stops and breaks!

Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:
For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees
New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.
Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.
Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.
Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.
At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
