National Trust Night Runs

Overview

image1

Night Run, organised in partnership with Cotswold Outdoor and The National Trust, is a programme of after-dark trail running events in the National Trust owned sites. Running along moonlit trails through ancient parkland, woodland and gardens is an exciting way of keeping active during the autumn and winter.

Whats the Course like?

Routes for little and long legs  Choose the Explorer route (1-3km) or the Adventurer route (6-9km). Both routes are totally traffic-free, mostly on paths and trails and are open to runners and walkers. If you're new to running or looking to go on a family adventure the Explorer route could be just the ticket. The Adventurer route will put you through your paces if you're a seasoned runner, but is also fun if you want to take your time. Don't forget to bring a head torch.


Typically  Night Runs are off-road on a mix of multi-terrain paths, bridleways or grassland. The route is marked with reflective arrows, with marshals at critical points to ensure everyone follows the route safely.


Where, when and how much?

Night Runs are taking place at a number different locations, from October 2018 to March 2019.


£7 for children and £14 for adults


Night Running events help  to support  essential conservation work. Your entry fee will go to the location where you run so you can be sure the money is being spent on conserving national trust sites.

Every participant will need a torch to get round the course. A reasonable quality head torch would be ideal and ensure you have spare batteries too. You will not be allowed to take part without a torch and will have to show this before you get your run number.
