Haldon Night Trail Race 2022
Our popular night trail race returns to Haldon Forest for 2022. There’s a single loop 10K course and a shorter 5K course. New for 2022 is a fancy dress category, and there’ll be prizes for the best fancy dress. And there’s a team competition too!
For the children, we offer a fun one-lap 1K race (3-7 yrs) or a two-lap 2K race for slightly older children aged 8-11. Routes are clearly marked with reflective poles & arrows.
For all kids races we are happy for adults to run with them for no additional charge. Head torches or chest torches will be needed.
There is plenty of parking (chargeable) & there will be catering on site.
