COVID-19 INFORMATION

Covid Safety measures

These will comply with the Governing Body Guidelines the TRA, under the auspices of England Athletics and the ARC.

  • Hand sanitiser will be placed outside all toilets, as well as on a table. Paper toilet seat covers, one per person, will be used in toilets and portable loos
  • Signs reminding of ‘social distancing’ will be placed around the venue.
  • Seated staff will wear masks.
  • We WILL NOT be holding a race briefing. Instead runners will receive an electronic briefing with a video and description of the route.
  • For the start, we will be using a rolling start wave window split in to two one hour windows. This will be done alphabetically.
  • This event will be signed and marshalled.
  • Race chips/numbers will either sent out in the post, or ‘dipped’ in an antiseptic ‘bath’ and collected at registration.
  • There will be no prize giving ceremony.
  • Water and finisher’s medals will be located remote from the Finish to discourage social gathering (our biggest concern).
  • Spectators will not be encouraged.
  • All marshals will be given bin bags and disposable gloves. Anyone caught littering will be disqualified.

We will be signing runners back in back in when they finish their run behind the Plume of Feathers Pub . All runners will be issued with an NFC chip which will be used to sign in at the finish. They will swipe themselves in at the end and we will have a manual paperback system. We will be accounting for all of our runners with this new back-up policy. This applies to ALL runners. We will also have sweepers out on the course for all three distances.

Organiser's Description

This is a 100 per cent off roader 12 mile off road and 10K trail run on Dartmoor, starting and finishing at Dartmoor Brewery in Princetown.

Course Details
BURRATOR 10 mile

The route starts off through Norsworthy up to the Princetown-South Hessary track. It will turn left at the junction and continue in an anti clockwise direction, as far as the old railway line at Princetown. Runners will follow this for a short distance before veering off south over the B3212 road, which they will skirt until reaching the boundary at Burrator, heading back along the leats through the plantation. The course will be well marked, but you will still need to have your wits about you and take responsibility for your own decisions. The race is on open moorland in places and we can not guarantee the weather!

BURRATOR 10K & 5K

The Burrator 10k 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. By popular demand, and to accommodate younger runners aged 12-15, we’ve added a 5K. This starts at the end of the dam bridge & does one almost complete lap of the reservoir finishing with the other races.

TEAM COMPETITION

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.
