Burrator Noir 10 Mile & 10K routes

10 Mile Route

Starting off participants will be taken through Norsworthy up to the Princetown-South Hessary track. You'll follow this course anti-clockwise towards South Hessary Tor and go as far as the old railway line at Princetown.

Participants will then head south over the B3212 road, and skirt around it to reach Burrator. This course will be well-marked, and has parts that travel through open moorland.

10k Route

This route will be flat a fast and perfect for a new PB. Taking place almost solely on tarmac it starts just south of the visitor centre and follows just under 2 loops of the reservoir before ending right back at race HQ.

This course is perfect for first-timers either new to night racing, not-used to off-road running, or to anyone pushing for a PB.

5k Route

This one lap course around the reservoir is perfect for younger runners. You'll start off at the end of the dam bridge and make it back in time to cross that finish line with the rest of the racers.

Meet the organiser

We recognise that many of our runners may be new to self navigation events and want to become more confident runners who can dispense with a guide.So we are also offering NNAS navigation courses (for runners or walkers). The spirit of community and camaraderie of the group night runs, has cemented many friendships, since they began. Wild Running Camps aims to replicate the camaraderie of the Thursday night runs. Both the Beginner’s Fell Camps for women in the Lake District and our Wild Running Camp on Dartmoor, involve sharing communal meals in a cosy farmhouse, while our bespoke Scotland Camps can involve sharing a hostel, cottage or a hotel and listening to talks about the local geology and even whisky tasting, upon request. The chance to run on a guided route over a munro is central but by no means the only part of the experience. Last year, our guides learnt a lot about hygge when a large Danish group signed up for our Scotland camp. They were excellent company. Without the group, we are just loan wolfs bound for extinction. The end goal is not to chip away at your 10k time but to enjoy the process of running and hopefully to avoid injuries, in as much as this is possible.
