What type of head torch will I need?
Generally the more expensive the head torch, the brighter and more reliable the light will be and it will enable you to run faster. It is recommended that you spend at least £30 on a head torch. A £5 petrol station head torch is not recommended.
Can I race with my dog?
Dogs are not permitted on the course.
Can I wear headphones?
No, the use of music players and earphones is not allowed during the race.
I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t so clear where to go - some 5k runners did 4K, some did 6k, there were few signs and not really enough Marshalls. It was fun tho, liked the fire pits and the snacks at the end, so thanks.
Did the race in 2020
