10 mile Wild Night Run Race.

The South West’s toughest Night Race returns for a 6th year! 10 tough, muddy, rocky, boggy miles on Dartmoor.
The first five miles is mainly uphill following the river to Shipley Bridge with one or two brief descents to give you some respite. There is then a tarmac section (though still slightly uphill) before you get out onto Dartmoor. Blizzards, nearly waist deep bogs – you’ll find them all in this section of the course. The second half is mainly downhill but with a couple of short sharp climbs to keep you on your toes including the notorious and very muddy Brent Hill. This is a tough race and not for the faint-hearted. Matching your half marathon time on a flat track is not easy!

5 mile Mild Night Run

Still wild but shorter. This follows the stunning river path from South Brent to Shipley Bridge, mainly uphill with a couple of short downs,  then loops round to descend a steep rocky track (care needed) before rejoining the last section of the river path. Still challenging but aimed at less experienced runners.

1 Km and 2Km Kids Races

We have now added kids races to the Wild Night Run for children aged 2-11. Click Here for details and to enter them.

King and Queen of the Night

There will be prizes for the fastest finishers in senior and vets categories. However there are also special prizes for anyone who manages to beat the King (if you’re a man) or Queen (if you’re a woman) of the night. The King and Queen are top trail runners who will be brightly lit and your target to try and beat.

Race entry includes: electronic chip timing, fully marked out course using poles, arrows & flashing lights , feed station, Birch wood finisher’s medal, bottled water for all finishers,  free number transfer if you are unable to run, prizes (see FAQ) & spot prizes (via our free to join Strava club).

Team Competition & Series Points

We now have an optional team competition. If you don’t have a team use your club name which will also qualify for the team competition. The team’s time is the time of the first three team members to cross the line added together. Your best 4 results from 7 races count for Series Points. However if you only manage two or three races you’ll still appear in the results
