+ 2K & 1K for under 12s
Check out our Video of the 2017 Burrator 10K
The Burrator 10K is a fast, flat route that is almost all on tarmac. UK Athletics license applied for and it will be run under UK athletics rules. From 2017 we moved the start and finish back by approx 300 yards which hugely improved congestion at the start and finish. We have other improvements including medals handed out at the finish and Kids Races on the off-road trails that go from the Discovery Centre along the lake.
The setting is stunning but it’s also perfect for a PB! It starts 0.5 miles south east of the visitor centre and does one complete loop of the reservoir and then 2/3rds of a second loop before finishing at exactly 10K about 300 metres from HQ (the visitor centre). This course, measured and certificated by England Athletics, was first used for the Burrator Noir 10K, run on a wet and windy night in December 2015. There is just 113 metres of climbing on this course. And we’re sure a top runner in good conditions can break 30 minutes. However it’s also ideal for fun runners and beginners.
You can leave warm-up clothing etc at HQ (The Discovery Centre) or at the start for transport back to the finish.
Race entry includes: free professional event photos, secure left luggage facility, professional electronic chip timing (with separate gun times & start times), distance markers every km, 2 x drink & feed stations, finisher’s medal, water or energy drinks in a biodegradable corn cup & bananas for all finishers. Number transfer costs £5 if you are unable to run, category prizes & spot prizes (via our free to join Strava club). Open to everyone aged 15 or over. But for anyone under 15 we have Kids Races.
