Lighting up the trails

Event date: 2023

Registration: TBC

Petzl Night Trail Wales

Taking place 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.

An entry date for the 2023 event is to be confirmed and has an entry limit of 350 total places. The spaces will comprise 50 solo runners and 100 teams of 3.
