From the organizer

Organizer's website

After our inagurual year last year, we are pleased to have this event firmly back on the calendar with headline sponsors, Macbeths Insurance supporting us and you every step of the way.

Beale Park and the surrounding area really is a stunning location for an evening run - with parts of the course near the Thames and others through the woods. One not to miss.
