The first three miles are mainly uphill following the river to Shipley Bridge with one or two brief descents to give you some respite. There is then a tarmac section (though still slightly uphill) before you get out onto Dartmoor, turning right at the Avon bridge before the boundary stones

(missing out the Abbott’s Way). Blizzards, nearly waist deep bogs – you’ll find them all in this section of the course. The route then heads to Didworthy and up Diamond Lane towards Corringdon Ball gates and back via Aish Ridge and Lydia Bridge.

It no longer includes the notoriously muddy Brent Hill. This is a tough race and not for the faint-hearted.

5 Mile Mild Night Run - still wild but shorter. This follows the stunning river path from South Brent to Shipley Bridge, mainly uphill with a couple of short downs, then loops round to descend a steep rocky track (care needed) before rejoining the last section of the river path. Still challenging but aimed at less experienced runners.
