The Wild Night Run 10 mile & 5 mile

South Brent Village Hall, South Brent, Devon. TQ10 6PJ

Organiser's Description

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.
