Battle of Woodbury Common

Next Race: 15/01/2022 + 1 other

Bicton College, EX9 7BY

The route is flatter than Dartmoor but still has 200m of ascent across the 10K. Most of the course is on sandy soil & well drained though you may encounter some mud & a couple of stream crossings.

New for 2022 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!


There's a Canicross races to give people the chance to run with their dogs.


This venue is ideal for kids too so we’ve added two kids races taking place at 5.3PM There’s a 1K for under 8s and a 2K for children aged 8-11 and the whole course is in the grounds of Bicton College.

You must bring a head torch. 

Race entry includes: electronic chip timing, fully marked out course using poles, arrows & flashing lights , feed station, Birch wood finisher’s medal, bottled water for all finishers,  free number transfer if you are unable to run, category prizes & spot prizes (via our free to join Strava club).

Our caterers West Country Catering will be serving hot food & drinks.

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 with google maps. It’s a  spot on the main drive & should ensure you arrive from the right direction.
