What's included
This year, the WNR will form part of the Dartmoor Night Fell Series. To keep entry prices down, we have added medals and series running vests as an optional extra. We will donate a Clive's Pie to Kingsbridge Food Kitchen for every entrant, instead of doing mass medals. By entering this, you are helping to donate. All courses will be marked and marshalled and in the dark!
