Route information
Taking place in the magnificent, 1,500 hectare Haldon Forest with its range of woodland trails, this night race event features 10k and 5k options. The 10k race now features a canicross option, allowing participants to run with their dogs.
There are also two kids races on offer - a one-lap 1k route for those aged between 3 and 7, and a two-lap 2k route for children aged 8-11 - making this event family-friendly. Adults can run with their children at no additional cost.
Due to the event taking place at night, safety is a priority, and the courses will be clearly marked with reflective poles and arrows. However, all runners must wear a head torch or chest torch in order to participate.
