Age 17 & over
Mixed terrain race for all the family from 1K up to a Half Marathon. Starting from Bicton College, the routes explore the sandy soil trails of Woodbury Common, on fully marshalled and waymarked courses. Professionally organised, these races offer a great opportunity to run at night in a safe and supported manner. The two junior races take place entirely in the grounds of Bicton College, ensuring a safe and fun event for all involved.
This event is part of Battle of Woodbury Common.
There’s also a Canicross race to give people the chance to run with their dogs.
Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:
For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees
New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.
Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.
Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.
Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.
At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
