Battle of Woodbury Common
Which race? See below..
Battle of Woodbury starts at Bicton. There’s a bit of tarmac at the start but then it’s onto Woodbury Common. There are climbs but nothing too steep so it’s all runnable.
Most of the course is on sandy soil & well drained. You may encounter some mud but no bog. The 5k has is 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.
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!
There’s also a Canicross race to give people the chance to run with their dogs. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see a video of the 2019 Canicross start!
This venue is ideal for kids too so we’ve added kids races taking place at 5pm. There’s a 1k for under 8’s and a 2k for children 8-11. For all kids races you are welcome to run with your children at no additional charge.
You’ll need a head or chest torch and a pair of running shoes.
