4 races

£9.00 - £25.00

Organiser's Description

The Burrator Noir is one of our earliest races and returns to its original venue at the Discovery Centre at Burrator Reservoir.

It includes a 12 mile trail run and a 10k flat, fast, road run around the perimeter of the reservoir.

The trail route consists of moorland, plantation, leats, gnarly, rocky, paths and disused railway lines- all very runnable. We’ve added on two extra miles to circumvent the B3212, which runners previously had to negotiate. Not any more- just straight across. It’s back as part of the Wild Night Run and Wild Run Series.

The noir includes most of the original 10 mile trail route along the forested paths that lead from the Discovery Centre at Burrator Reservoir, along gnarly tacks through open moorland towards Nun’s cross then left to Princetown. It then follows the old disused railway line near

Foggintor Quarry and back to Burrator Reservoir via the trail behind Ingra Tor and through the leatside plantation.

We have also brought back the original kids races, in the spirit of the Wild Night Run Series.

Route description & Fly Thru

The route is a classic mixed terrain race, featuring forested footpaths, open moorland and some gnarly rocky trail, from Norsworthy towards Nun’s Cross.
But it bears left towards Princetown after the initial 2k or so, a deceptively uphill climb towards the footpath from Princetown and then picks up the disused railway line towards the quarries and bears south towards Ingra Tor before re entering the reservoir plantation and follows the leat home to the Discovery centre at Burrator. It’s the old Burrator Noir route, with an additional 2 mile section, to keep runners away from tarmac. It’s well worth the effort!

Fly Thru Here

kit list

Functional running wear and appropriate off-road running shoes are presupposed for the trail race race. The course will be muddy, so grippy fell type shoes would be the best option. Road shoes will not be appropriate.

A head torch is required, as well as spare batteries and a long-sleaved top.

Dogs are only permitted for the road 10k - sorry.
