#BRIGHTERNIGHTS

RAF WOODBRIDGE NIGHT RUN

 

Night Runs Lit Up! Brighter Nights is a series of after-dark trail running events that take place at unique venues in East Anglia. Running along moonlit trails through ancient woodland and forests, we use exciting lighting effects to pick out interesting features from mansions and natural features to creepy trees. The courses are marked with reflective signs so all you need is a head torch and some grippy trail trainers. If you don't like the dark you can always book into our early waves which start at 3 pm and enjoy some great trail running. There is a virtual option too!

RAF Woodbridge is a former Royal Air Force station. Steeped in history, mystery and veiled in UFO secrecy. Surrounded by pine forest this night run will take you along the well-maintained runway in the dead of night, past watchtowers, bunkers and aircraft hangers and along the dark forest edges. But don't worry Brighter Nights is planning to lighten things up. We will be illuminating the towers and hangers creating a unique night run experience at a strictly off-limits venue. It's going to be a bit creepy...
