Torch Challenge

Next Challenge: 10/03/2018

Location: Dalby Forest Night Runner

We return to Dalby Forest for our last event of our Winter No Ego Challenges in Winter 2018. The 5 mile course takes place on the tracks and trails through the mighty Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire. But this course is run the opposite way to our January event. Can you run this faster?

Race start time 6:20 pm 

Pure Trail running returns, NO EGO style, in the Dark

PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE EVENT POSTER TO STICK UP AT WORK OR YOUR GYM

This race will be on a combination of single narrow tracks, fire breaks forest trails and linking gravel trucking linking everything through the forest. Head torch race is fun and challenging; don't forget your sense of humour. You will get dirty, so be prepared. This is not an obstacle race, apart from ducking to miss branches, avoiding tree roots and running down steep decents.

If you don't have a head torch they can be purchased from stores or online for around £15.00+ or just use a hand held torch if you wish.

Head torches WILL NOT be on sale on the night of the event

For insurance purposes the minimum age for this event is 16 years old on the night.


The start and finish of this head torch race will be close to the main car parking area of the Visitor Centre. But you will be running the route in the opposite direction from January.
