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. 18:00 Entry Fees: £35.00 solo and £50.00 for teams (plus online booking fee and NRW facilities fee). 01341 423459
