Route information
Elevation Hilly
Terrain Varied
10 Mile Wild
The first three miles is mainly uphill following the river to Shipley Bridge with one or two brief descents to give you some respite. There is then a tarmac section (though still slightly uphill) before you get out onto Dartmoor, turning right at the Avon Dam and crossing the Abbott’s Way, exiting the moor near Dockwell farm. Blizzards, nearly waist deep bogs – you’ll find them all in this section of the course. The route then heads back via the infamously muddy Brent Hill, Aish Ridge and Lydia Bridge.
This is a tough race and not for the faint-hearted.
5 Mile Mild Night Run
Still wild but shorter. This follows the stunning river path from South Brent to Shipley Bridge, mainly uphill with a couple of short downs, then loops round to descend a steep rocky track (care needed) before rejoining the last section of the river path. Still challenging but aimed at less experienced runners.
Both courses will be fully marked and marshalled, and in the dark.

All courses will be marked and marshalled and in the dark!
