Lighting up the trails

Petzl Night Trail Wales

Taking place on Saturday the 7th of October 2017 at 6.00pm at Coed y Brenin forest park in Wales, the Petzl Night Trail Wales is a race with a difference!

Imagine a runnable 3-4km route, not too technical, with enough elevation to sort out the runners. Imagine a race that starts in the dusk of an Autumn Saturday evening, and ends in full darkness. Imagine an event with a real party atmosphere, with a DJ, bar, hot food and a race arena lit up with flood lights.

As you can imagine too, head torches are mandatory kit for the race and there will be a sea of head lights winding their way through the trails throughout the evening.

The race will be determined by those runners who complete the most number of laps in 3 hours, simple, and you’ll be kept up to date with race commentary and leader board style updates for the leading men, women and teams.

Team Race: Minimum age for runners is 14 years on race day, and during the race each team member must complete at least one lap.

Solo Race: Minimum age is 18 year on the race day. 

You can expect the same great organisation, welcome, atmosphere and fun of the Trail Marathon Wales event, though perhaps a little colder, and definitely darker. The cafe and balconies at Coed y Brenin will be open all evening too, making for a stadium style viewing gallery.

Entry for the 2017 event opens on 1st of March, 2017 at 8.00am and has an entry limit of 400 total places. The spaces will comprise 100 solo runners and 100 teams of 3.
