With those pesky road marathons out of the way it’s time to head to the trails and seek out adventure.

From Friday 29 May, we will be organising a NIGHT trail run every two weeks. The plan will be to get the tube/train/bus to a new location (approx 45 mins from central London) where will explore the trails as a group. The run will be approximately 8-10 miles (around 1hr 20m–1hr 30m). All welcome. Beginners to advanced runners.

Lights will be needed and we have 8 spares which are available to borrow. These are first come, first served. Alternatively we are happy to recommend head torches to those who want to buy their own (they aren’t awfully expensive and having your own is best if you want to run regularly at night).

While the weather is good, normal road shoes will suffice.

Finally, we are going to ask for a £5 contribution for these runs to cover our own expenses.
