Burrator Noir 10 Mile & 10K

IconSuggest an edit

See any improvements? Be the first to make this page better.

The Burrator Noir returns for a 4th year. It’s a tough 10-ish mile off-road race up onto the open Moor starting at the Burrator visitor centre and taking in some stunning terrain including some tough climbs and the exhilerating descent from Guttor Tor down to Meavy Splash, the ford where you can brave the water or go the long way round and lose 30 seconds or so.

Or we have the Burrator 10K. This is a fast, flat route that is almost all on tarmac and exactly 10K! Perfect for a night time PB! It starts 0.7 miles south east of the visitor centre and does one complete loop of the reservoir and then 2/3rds of a second loop before finishing at exactly 10K right by HQ (the visitor centre). Ideal for first time night runners, keen road runners, people not used to running off-road or anyone who just wants a night PB on a quick course.

Event Details

Kit List

For all our races a head torch or body mounted light (such as a Kalenji run light)  must be worn throughout the duration of the race. You may want to wear additional safety lighting, flashers, glo-sticks, handtorches, etc, but these must be in addition to the main front facing head or body torch.

Kit lists are published in the race manuals. However for all races we do ask you to wear hi-viz or reflective clothing. And don’t forget to bring warm dry clothing to change into after the race. Also worth having a look at our Top 10 Tips for Running at Night.


Can I bring my dog ?

Generally dogs are not permitted at our races due to issues with livestock, Dartmoor National Parks etc. Our races are also currently run under Trail Running Association Rules and they don’t allow dogs either. The TRA is a spin off from England Athletics and we feel that while a ‘no dogs’ policy is reasonable for a 10K road run it’s not necessarily the right way to go for trail races. So we are investigating some other options for insuring our events. Watch this space!

Is there a registration limit ?

There is a limit of 250 total participants for the Wild Night Run and the Mild Night run. Our other races have limits taking into account parking, availability of toilets etc.

Can I wear my MP3/Ipod ?

For your safety, music players and headphones may not be worn.

Will the race be timed ?

All our races will be chip timed using NFC chips working with our new registration and timing provider Results will be available on the night and also on our website within a few hours. There is also a free results app available at the link below.

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.
