The Wild Night Run – 18.01.20

The South West’s toughest night race – ten tough, muddy, rocky, boggy miles on Dartmoor. The first five miles are mainly uphill, following the river to Shipley Bridge, with one or two brief descents to give you some respite. There’s then a slightly uphill tarmac section before you get out onto Dartmoor – blizzards, nearly waist-deep bogs – you’ll find it all here.

Back to Black Bristol – 22.02.20

A choice of 10k or 5k races, both will start at Leigh Court on the edge of Leigh Woods, a popular spot for running in Bristol. You’ll be starting just as it gets dark so a head torch is essential. The running surface is generally fairly smooth so ideal for beginners and fast runners alike.
