Here are the distances available for The Wild Night Run
This is the most challenging night run in the South West, with mixed terrain across Dartmoor. Expect mud, rocks and bogs to get in your way, and that's before you take in the uphill climbs. You might even have to contend with a blizzard depending on weather conditions. The second half of the race is more downhill than the first half, but it includes Brent Hill, which is infamously muddy.
There is a milder route available for 5 Mile runners, which is still challenging but is designed for less experienced trail runners.
