Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in Jun 2019

It was our pleasure and privilege to once again sponsor the Dartmoor Discovery Ultra Marathon - a notoriously tough 32-mile run taking in some of the most challenging hills in any UK road race.

Competitors were provided with well-received refreshment after the race with a bottle of our Dartmoor IPA - and they certainly deserved it!

Race Director Roger Hayes gives us a run-down of this year's event, with his Race Report below:

Helping Dartmoor Rescue Group Keep in Touch

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in Sep 2018

Dartmoor is a stunning place to escape the day-to-day, particular if outdoor pursuits are your thing, and the Dartmoor Rescue Group does an incredible job in keeping people safe on the moor.  We're delighted to have been able to help them out with a new radio repeater to improve their communications across Dartmoor's rugged terrain.

The new radio repeater was handed over to Dartmoor Rescue Group's Richard Thorne MBE by Dartmoor Brewery MD Richard Smith as part of our ongoing sponsorship of the group.

The new repeater is capable of handling both traditional analogue signals and the latest digital transmissions.

We're excited to be sponsoring, once again, the Pivot TwentyFour12 endurance cycling event - brilliant two-wheeled fun, with a family-friendly festival feel, but definitely not for the faint-hearted! 

The event takes place from 26th to 29th July 2018 in the stunning setting of Newnham Park in Plymouth. 

There's a 24-hour race, a 12-hour daytime race, and a nerve-rattling midnight 12-hour race.

Dartmoor Discovery Ultra Marathon - not for the faint hearted!

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in May 2018

We're proud and honoured to be sponsoring the legendary Dartmoor Discovery (DD) ultramarathon, which goes back to its roots this year with a special 20th anniversary route celebrating the race’s original 34-mile course.

The 2018 Dartmoor Discovery (affectionately known as the DD) starts and finishes in Princetown, home of Dartmoor Brewery, on 2nd June, celebrating the early years of the race, before the route was changed to avoid a busy road.

Race Director Roger Hayes said: ‘The DD attracts some of toughest athletes in the ultramarathon discipline. The 2018 course will offer these athletes the opportunity to truly test themselves against the event’s classic, turn-of-the-century...
