Race 3 – Burrator Noir and 10K, 5.30pm, Sat 1 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 8 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.
