PETZL WILD NIGHT RUN RACE 10 MILE & 5 MILE (both courses marked and marshalled)

The South West’s toughest Night Race returns for a 10th year. The good news is, it’s still 10 tough, muddy, rocky, boggy miles on Dartmoor and it's in the dark and it's marked!.

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 bridge before the boundary stones

(missing out the Abbott’s Way). Blizzards, nearly waist deep bogs – you’ll find them all in this section of the course. The route then heads to Didworthy and up Diamond Lane towards Corringdon Ball gates and back via Aish Ridge and Lydia Bridge.

It no longer includes the notoriously muddy Brent Hill. This is a tough race and not for the faint-hearted.

5 MILE MILD NIGHT RUN. (Marked course and marshalled)

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.


There will be prizes for the fastest overall podium finishers in senior and vets categories.

Race entry includes: electronic chip timing, fully marked out course using poles and canes, arrows, feed station, Birch wood finisher’s medal for all finishers,

free number transfer if you are unable to run, prizes & spot prizes (via our free to join Strava club).


We now have an optional team competition. If you don’t have a team use your club name which will also qualify for the team competition.

The team’s time is the time of the first three team members to cross the line added together.

Your best 3 results from 6 races count for Series Points. However if you only manage two races you’ll still appear in the results

Hot food and drinks will be available to take away from the race HQ at the Old School Community Centre car park. proceeds will go towards the South Brent community arts group.
