Route information
This is a great course for your first taste of night running, taking you through Dartington's woods. Although there are some hills and a good dose of mud, there aren't any major challenges, so you're encouraged to enjoy yourself with friends, fancy dress and Christmas cheer.
All routes start and finish at the same point. The longer routes head towards Staverton Ford Plantation. Then, the 5K route heads straight to North Wood before looping back, while the 10K route first does a loop along the banks of the River Dart and then follows the 5K route.
