The fourth Wild Dart Swim is moving to September. As with previous years, you can enter the 2.5k or 5k swim, as well as a 7k aquathlon. New this year is a and 15k and 1.5 mile sprint aquathlon, so something to keep swimmers, runners and triathletes happy.

The 5k swim covers an out and back route, starting and finishing at the Dart-Totnes Rowing Club on Steamer Quay. The 2.5k swimmers start at the same place in separate waves (according to your predicted finishing time) but exit as Sharpham. Aquathoners will also exit at Sharpham, then move to a nearby transition area, before running the three miles back to the rowing club, following the cycle path above the Dart.

Swimming alongside the tow path and the reed beds, which line the Sharpham side of the river and the rolling hills on the left, which wind along towards Stoke Gabriel. You will take your first snake bend here, as the river takes a turn towards Sharpham.

You will know youre approaching the half way buoy when you can catch sight of a small pontoon on your right, which is Sharphams North Quay.

The 7k aquathlon includes the 2.5k swim and a hilly 4.5k run along the cycle track from Sharpham House to Moat Hill, turning left at The Steam Packet before crossing the bridge to Bridgetown and turning right in to Steam Quay and the rowing club. The course suits road shoes.

The 15k aquathlon takes runners up the hill from Sharpham Houe and down the road through Ashprington towards Bow Bridge before runners follow the Harbourne River to Beanleigh cross and back to Sharpham and then Totnes via the bicycle tracks.

The sprint aquathlon will precede all the other events and includes an 800 n swim along the River Dart parallel to the walkway,until it reaches its end and the swimmers get out and transition before running a short 1 mile loop around Steamer Quay.

This genuinely epic ultra starts in Lynmouth and finishes in Ivybridge (100 miles) with the option of continuing to Wembury if you finish within 30 hours (111 miles). You will run through the night and anyone who gets to Ivybridge inside 24 hours will receive a special prize!

This is a very challenging self navigation ultra, and isn't to be taken lightly. You'll be crossing two national parks: Exmoor in the north of Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor National Park, following the recently relaunched Two Moors Way. Despite the minimal ascent, only experienced ultra runners or participants with good navigation skills will be accepted. Even in September, good weather can not be assured and parts of the route can become boggy.

Dont be fooled, this is no baby ultra! Its a fully fledged Dartmoor Crossing, following the Two Moors Way, which will require self navigation skills.

The Burrator Noir returns for a 4th year. Its 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.

The Dart Dart Dash, a 10K night race around the woods of Dartington, is back for its 4th year.. A great warm up race for the Wild Night Run in Feb. By popular demand weve also added a 5K version open to anyone over 12!

The terrain is less challenging than the Wild Night Run and if youre new to night running, this race is an ideal introduction. However there are still a couple of hills and (sometimes) a fair bit of mud. Bring your friends, dress up, have a sup of mulled wine and share in the festive atmosphere and warm food, cooked by the fantastic Kitchen Table. Oh and bring a head torchyou will need it!
