Event summary

Won't it be dark? Yes, that's sort of the point – and it's awesome! Join us for the Gato Sports Head Torch 10K!

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.

Frequently asked questions
FAQ
What is Gato Sports?
They are our event partners. They were born in 2017 and are focused on sports, safety and durability. Key to their success is their innovative range of reflective products keeping you, ‘the athlete’, visible when out training. Whether your sport is running, cycling, hiking or horse riding, Gato Sports will keep you safe and visible in all conditions.Coventry Runner are our local stockist. We will also be running social runs where you can try out their gear; like Big Bear Events on Facebook to see when these will be.
FAQ
Is this a cupless event?
No. Unlike our other events, we will have some biodegradable cups with water/electrolyte drinks available on the course, and we will have hot drinks available before and after too. If you have a foldable cup you can bring, even better; but we don't insist on it for our short races.
