The Wild Night Run 10 mile & 5 mile
The South West’s toughest night race - ten tough, muddy, rocky, boggy miles on Dartmoor. The first five miles are mainly uphill, following the river to Shipley Bridge, with one or two brief descents to give you some respite. There's then a slightly uphill tarmac section, before you get out onto Dartmoor - blizzards, nearly waist deep bogs – you’ll find it all here. The second half is mainly downhill, with a couple of short sharp climbs to keep you on your toes, including the notorious and very muddy Brent Hill. This is a tough race and not for the faint-hearted.
The 5 mile option is still wild and follows the stunning river path from South Brent to Shipley Bridge. It then loops round to descend a steep rocky track (care needed) before rejoining the river path. Still challenging but aimed at less experienced runners.

TEAM COMPETITION & SERIES POINTS
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 4 results from 7 races count for Series Points. However if you only manage two or three races you’ll still appear in the results
First-hand event reviews from people who've been there, done that and got the breathable T-shirt, really help everyone choose their next event.
It only takes a few seconds and every month we randomly select someone who has taken the time to write a review and send them a £50 Wiggle voucher.
