About the event


The Dark Dart Dash IS a 10K and 12 mile mixed terrain night race around the woods and trails on the edge of the Dart, is back for its seventh year.

We’ve revised the Wild Dart Aquathlon and old Moonlit Flit route, to make it a stunning 12 mile and 10k circular night run, which will be fully marked and marshalled.

The terrain is challenging but there and is a genuinely mixed terrain event. Unlike the old Dartington Dark Dart Dash, there will be a few hills and a very welcoming post run venue. Bring your friends, dress up, have a sup of Don't forget to bring a head torch…you will need it!


  • electronic chip timing
  • fully marked out course
  • arrows & flashing lights
  • feed station
  • birch wood finisher’s medal
  • number transfer if you are unable to run

We now have an optional team competition. If you don’t have a team, you can use your club name to qualify for the team competition. Your team’s time is the combined time of the first three team members to cross the line.
