The Delamere Forest Night Runner Course

The night trail running race is a 10k course that consists of three separate loops. The first loop you will run around Blakemere Moss which will lead you onto the second loop and the notorious forest warrior. Your third loop will take you up Pale Heights before dropping back down and heading back into the forest towards the finish line. Waiting for you at the finish will be a well-deserved medal.

The course is a mixture of gravel and trail path, some sections of the course can get wet and muddy. The course is relatively flat with only one significant hill near the end. The course will be heavily marshalled as well as having directional signs and sticks with reflective tape on. This year we will also have mile markers and Strava segment signs along the course.


Trail Kidz:

There will be a free Trail Kidz 1k night trail running event for children taking place at 6:10pm, with medals for all finishers. You will have enough time to run with your children before taking part in the 10k! There is no online registration for this event. You will need to register your child(ren) on the night at the Trail Kidz Registration Tent


How much to enter:

The cost to enter the night trail running event is £25, which includes your pay and display car parking fee, your night runner t-shirt and finishers medal.
