Petzl Night Trail Wales

Petzl Night Trail Wales

Details

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.
