FOLR SHERWOOD PINES
Awarded the 'Best Regional Trail Run 2020' by Trail Running Magazine, this electric event is a night run through illuminated woodlands. Taking place in the Sherwood Pines, it's not just your average night run - expect an electric atmosphere, bright beautiful lights, illuminated forest features and dark zones.
This is a 3k lap course and the idea is to do as many laps as you can within the time limit. For your laps to count, you need to have started your last lap within the two-hour time frame. You do not have to run continuously and you only need to complete one lap to receive a finishers medal.
There are prizes for most laps completed (male and female) over and under 16. The trails will be good solid trails and easy to navigate. There will be dark zones so head torches will be required!
