Gato Sports Head Torch 10k – November

Tickets on organiser’s site
Event summary

Wont it be dark?Yes... That it sort of the point - and it's awesome! You must have a headtorch to run.

Your organiser

The majority of our events are challenge events - multi-lap races with a time limit rather than a set distance. This means people can run all different distances on the same day, making for a great atmosphere. Lapped events can get some negative feedback but our laps are around beautiful locations. We avoid out and back laps and coming back to the wonderful aid station (full of your requests) can be a good motivator. Whether it's your A race, you need to do some long training runs, you have a 100-mile ultra in a few weeks or you want to hammer out a quick 10k, our races allow everyone to get involved together. We’re also expanding our mid-week evening 10K series too. Keep an eye out for updates on these as we are continually adding more. Expect the same care and attention and in the same great locations!

Route description
Route description

It will be a 2-lap, traffic-free course. Salcey Forest is a very flat forest and the footpaths are well formed. Of course a forest in winter will be mucky, slippy and muddy but the route is on established pathways.
