The Burrator Noir is one of Wild running's earliest races and returns to its original venue at the Discovery Centre at Burrator Reservoir.
The main race includes 12 miles of moorland, plantation, leats, gnarly, rocky, paths and disused railway lines- all very runnable. They've added on two extra miles to circumvent the B3212, which runners previously had to negotiate. Not any more- just straight across. It’s back as part of the Wild Night Run and Wild Run Series.
The Noir includes most of the original 10 mile trail route along the forested paths that lead from the Discovery Centre at Burrator Reservoir, along gnarly tacks through open moorland towards Nun’s cross then left to Princetown. It then follows the old disused railway line near Foggintor Quarry and back to Burrator Reservoir via the trail behind Ingra Tor and through the leatside plantation.
Wild Running have also brought back the original kids races, in the spirit of the Wild Night Run Series. Come along to test your trail running ability. This will be a great afternoon for all of the family as there will also be a 1k and 2k kids race.
