The Course:
The night trail running race is a 10k course that consists of three separate loops. The first loop you will run around Blakemere Moss which will lead you onto the second loop and the notorious forest warrior. Your third loop will take you up Pale Heights before dropping back down and heading back into the forest towards the finish line. Waiting for you at the finish will be a well-deserved medal.
The course is a mixture of gravel and trail path, some sections of the course can get wet and muddy if we have had a spot of rain. The course is relatively flat with only one significant hill near the end. The course will be heavily marshalled as well as having directional signs and sticks with reflective tape on. This year we will also have mile markers and Strava segment signs along the course.

This event is a night run that requires people where to wear head torches.To enter this race go to;
