The event itself was good, course was clearly marked out with markers to show distances. Parking was a bit difficult but It was the only option. Due to parking there was a lot of waiting around at the beginning of the event with not a lot of shelter due to the start line being away from the discovery centre. … read more

Route description
Route description

The Burrator 10k is a fast, flat route that is almost all on tarmac, with just 113m of climbing.

The route starts 0.5 miles south east of the visitor centre and does one complete loop of the reservoir. Then runners travel 2/3rds of a second loop before finishing at exactly 10k about 300 metres from HQ (the visitor centre).

This was a very enjoyable race. Lovely friendly event. Scenic route and not too flat. Get there early to get a parking spot near the start/ rave HQ.

Organisation on the day was fantastic, the course was well marshalled and the finish line atmosphere was brilliant. I would have liked the race day info to have been sent out slightly earlier, but the day itself was a great first 10k.

The race was well organised and well run. The route is good apart from the incline near 5k mark and the end. Maybe next year could we have better weather didn't need the drenching really.

Good flat traffic free course, good atmosphere at the finish line where there were lots of treats and medals. Well organised to get the road shut and everything in place on time. The final prize giving and round up was quiet as most of the runners had gone home, it would be better if this was done at the finish line, mainly so that the organisers could be shown so more appreciation. Great system that sends you your time after the race.

Lovely race with great atmosphere and lots of people cheering you on. Despite the heavy showers we enjoyed it - plus there are cakes and coffee at the finish!

Great course despite finishing up a hill! Organisation ok. Parking ok but lack of info about where to catch the shuttlebus back to car. Ended up walking back. Loved the water-melon finish!! Great idea.

Parking isn't great. Had to wait 25 minutes for a park and ride bus and difficult to get out afterwards

Well organised scenic race. Parking always an issue. Vital to read pre-race instructions because each year the organisers tweak the parking

Brilliant day even though it rained.. Course could be a little more interesting? A little bit of off road perhaps? Staff were really friendly

Did the 10k in 2019
I did the race a couple of years ago and it was a bit disorganised around the finish line this year was more disorganised from the start. The website said we could do park & ride from Yelverton as we did before. This was not the case, a lot of time driving around looking for sign posts re the run. Plenty of posts advertising other functions going on in the area. Trying to park when we got to Burrator was silly, car parks full, grass verges full children and prams going between cars. Phoned the names on the website for advice that morning no answer. Spent ages in mini bus after race trying to get back to car as mini bus and oncoming ambulance could not pass each other. Will not be doing this run for a third time.

Excellent event. Really good atmosphere, despite some rain. I got a PB purely from being pushed by running with others. Loved it, would do again.

Really lovely run, it was pouting down with rain but there was still a good atmosphere. Really liked the watermelon at the end that was a nice treat xThe guy at the end was really friendly and helped us sing happy birthday to my buddy.

Well organised race, good atmosphere and no horrible steep hills!! Good 10k to run as reasonably flat, also nice wooden medal which is always a bonus x

I really enjoyed the actual course and the atmosphere was great. The organisation for me was the disappointing factor. It wasn’t clear where the start was exactly - the finish was clearer. Parking was horrendous!!

A fantastic fun positive day for everyone . Beautiful surroundings giving the run an exceptional freshness and vitality! Support from the beginning and throughout which made us feel so encouraged and included - really part of something new. This was a huge confidence boost for me and my family and has enhanced our lives significantly . Thank you.

Really enjoyed the route. Just the right amount of people. Well organised for the children’s races and the main race. Maybe should have 1 more water station.
