Event description

Description

What you Need to Know:

  • Distance: 10km

  • Run Level: Progressive*

  • Run Leader: Graham Kelly

This progressive trailrun will be on a mix of main paths and technical singletrack trails. It will be a steady pace (a rough guide of 9-10mins/mile) with some stops to re-group and keep things social. There are some good hill sections on good marked trails – these can be taken at a pace chosen by each runner with a regroup at the obvious summits.

*All of our runs are graded: Relaxed, Progressive, Speedy and Gnarly. To make sure you're on the right run for you, see our website: https://trailfestscotland.com/run-with-us/


This run is aimed at runners who:

  • already enjoy running 10km distance

  • run 10km on road and interested to start trailrunning

  • lack confidence running off-road, alone at night

  • are new to running with head torches or building up experience of night running

  • are looking to try trailrunning on sections of technical, singeltrack trails

What to wear/bring

  • Head torches are mandatory on all NIGHTRuns - no head torch, no run. We will enforce this to ensure runner and group safety

  • Trailrunning shoes - essential. There are technical sections which can be very muddy and slippy with some steep sections.

  • Hat/buff, gloves - recommended in colder weather

  • Waterproof jacket - optional to suit weather on the day – please bring one though.

  • Food & water - this is optional, but you may want to carry some run food or a water bottle/bladder.

  • Mobile phone - in case of emergency


Car Park
