Burrator 10km Sunday May 21st, 2017, 10am
START LIST and RACE MANUAL now published
The Burrator 10K is a fast, flat route that is almost all on tarmac. UK Athletics license applied for and it will be run under UK athletics rules. For 2017 we are moving the start and finish back by approx 300 yards. This will avoid congestion at the start and finish. We have other improvements including medals handed out at the finish and Kids Races on the off-road trails that go from the Discovery Centre along the lake.
The setting is stunning but it’s also perfect for a PB! It starts 0.5 miles south east of the visitor centre and does one complete loop of the reservoir and then 2/3rds of a second loop before finishing at exactly 10K about 300 metres from HQ (the visitor centre). This course, measured and certificated by England Athletics, was first used for the Burrator Noir 10K, run on a wet and windy night in December 2015 although the start and finish will both move by 300 metres or so for 2017. There is just 113 metres of climbing on this course. And we’re sure a top runner in good conditions can break 30 minutes. However it’s also ideal for fun runners and beginners.
You can leave warm-up clothing etc at HQ (The Discovery Centre) or on our baggage van for transport back to the finish. nb IN A CHANGE TO OUR ORIGINAL ARRANGEMENTS WE ARE NOW LIMITING ENTRY NUMBERS TO JUST 350 AND ALLOWING PARKING AT THE RESERVOIR.
