Battle of Woodbury Common

Bicton College, Budleigh Salterton, Devon

Organiser's Description

The Battle of Woodbury Common is our newest addition to the Night Run Series, and will start and end at Bicton College, in Budleigh Salterton, in East Devon. Half marathon and 10k distances will both complete a circuit of Woodbury Common.

After exiting the College, the route follows the helm of Uphams and Crook Plantations. It then skirts Castle Plantation, and the half marathon adds on a section through Colaton Raleigh Common, towards Hawkerland. Surfaces are mixed but generally less gnarly than our Dartmoor races. The route is relatively flat and dry, but there will be muddy bits to negotiate. The first and last kilometre is on road.

For the first time we’re offering Canicross races to give people the chance to run with their dogs. This venue is ideal for kids too, so we’ve added two kids' races - a 1k for under 8s and a 2k for ages 8-11.

My First Night Run

Thoroughly enjoyed this race, extremely lucky with weather.
Only gripe was probably down to me being tired, but no marshal at the end to direct me to finish went around the college wrong way round 🙄 but still got 1st V55 and only went a little further
Will know for next year

Good Event

Really enjoyed the event , not that experienced in trails so for a first time definitely learnt a lot, Some slightly challenging hill climbs and some long distance puddle jumping in the dark made it all the more fun. looking forward to next year now I know what to expect .

Trail Fun

This was a great event. Well organised without being too manicured!
Communications were good, route planned well and good marshal support from a friendly team.
A tough race due to conditions but well worth the effort.
Great work team.

The Weather gods were kind

My second attempt at this race, hoping for a sub 2 hour finish. Despite the weather being perfect, no rain this time and only a little wind I just missed out with a 2:05 finish. The organisation was great, there was a problem at the aid station where the marshal had to pour the waters as they were needed due to the wind blowing the cups over. Personally i think all races should be cupless so you can just leave a bunch of jugs out or canisters for people to pour into their own cups. On my second loop i did notice a few plastic cups that had either been blown there from the table or thrown there by the 10k runners, either way its not good. Hopefully these were collected the next day as finding them in the dark would have been difficult. That minor niggle aside it was a great race, night running on Woodbury is always a challenge with all of the loose rocks but thats what makes it so much fun. The wooded section is particularly fun.

The fun filled night challenge!

Great event filled with challenges but packed with fun! Extremely well signposted, brilliantly marshalled with encouragement along the way! Will definitely do this event again! Thank you!
