Burrator Noir 10 mile & 10k
The 10 mile course starts and finishes at the Burrator Discovery Centre in Yelverton, on the SW edge of Dartmoor. The route goes through Norsworthy up to the Princetown-South Hessary track, turning left towards South Hessary Tor and continuing as far as the old railway line at Princetown. Runners will follow this for a short distance before veering off South, reaching the boundary at Burrator, then heading back through the plantation.
The 10k is a fast, flat route, almost all on tarmac and exactly 10k! Perfect for a night time PB! It starts 0.7 miles SE of the visitor centre and does one complete loop of the reservoir and 2/3rds of a second loop, before finishing by the visitor centre. Ideal for first time night runners, people not used to running off-road, or anyone who just wants a night PB on a quick course. Head torch is essential.
Also children's races - 2k for ages 8-11 years and 1k for under 8s.
