Race 2 – The Dart 2 Dart 9.5 mile & 5 mile, 5.30pm, Sat 18 Nov

This was a new race in November 2016 and returns for a second season. Varied Moorland courses that are mainly off road. Find out more and Enter

Race 3 – Burrator Noir and 10K, 5.30pm, Sat 2 Dec,

Starts and finishes at Burrator Reservoir. Choose from the 10 mile Burrator Noir, a new race virtually all-off road that follows a big loop around Burrator. It’s fairly flat, for a Dartmoor run, so an ideal season opener. Alternatively there’s the Burrator 10K which is a fast, mainly tarmac 10K course based on a lap & three quarters of Burrator Reservoir – ideal for road runners or people new to night running.

Race 4 – Dart Dart Dash 10K and 5K, 5.30pm, Sat 16 Dec

This race moves to a Saturday evening and the start moves to Dartington Hall for extra facilities and more parking. However the course remains the same!  A tough, sometimes muddy 10K that’s almost all off-road & uses the best bits of the Dartington Estate.  Find out more and Enter

Our Totnes course is taking a breather for this year but we’ve found a fantastic Moorland course that’s 100 percent off-road and starts and finishes from Wrangaton Golf Club
