Battle of Woodbury Common

January 15, 2022
from 5:00 pm

Which race? See below..

Overview

The route may be a bit flatter than Dartmoor but there’s still some tough little climbs on our night trail races at Woodbury Common. Most of the course is on sandy soil & well drained though you may encounter some mud. New for 2021 is a 5k course. The 5k has about 3k on tarmac but on very quiet back lanes where you’re unlikely to come across a car. It also has a couple of great off-road sections.

Our 10k shares a start & finish with the 5k but also has a complete loop of Woodbury Common including a fun ‘single track’ section. This year our half marathon is two laps of the 10k course, but because you’re running it in the dark lap two will seem just as unfamiliar!

CANICROSS CATEGORY

There’s a Canicross race to give people the chance to run with their dogs.

Kids race. This venue is ideal for kids too so we’ve added two kids races taking place at 5pm. There’s a 1k for under 8’s and a 2k for children 8-11 and the whole course is in the grounds of Bicton College. (For smaller children we are happy for an adult with them)

You must bring a head torch.

We’ll have our own caterers on site.

EVENT INFORMATION

Parking & Directions

Google Maps tends to take you down narrow lanes & through the narrow back entrance straight into the path of runners. The best way to avoid this is to install the free What3Words app on your phone & use the location https://w3w.co/torched.broth.earpiece with google maps. It’s a  spot on the main drive & should ensure you arrive at the main entrance.
At the top of the drive the main car park is on your right.

Awards & Medals

All entries will get a finishers medal plus special podium medals & prizes.

Just as challenging and horrendous as I remember last year's one being. Big thanks to the marshals, especially the feed station, the water, jelly babies and bit of conversation were much needed at the start of the second loop for the half marathon.
