The Night Trail is aproximately 5 mile trail run - in the dark! The trail is lit by glow sticks & fairy lights to create an amazing atmosphere to run in and wonderful spectacle to see. The run is on footpaths and bridleways in the Leicestershire countryside- you can expect fields, woodlands and some surprising undulations!  Trail shoes are advised, particularly in wet conditions.  ALL runners MUST carry a torch/head torch - though you are encouraged to light up and go for glow!
