#FORESTOFLIGHTRUN

FOLR THETFORD FOREST

 

This running event will have you looking in wonderment as you pass through an enchanted wood. Taking place in Thetford Forest this exciting new event is a night run. Not just your average night run either; we're going to be lighting up the forest, just for you!

Inspire Races are making it a lap event which comprises of a 3k route - 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.

 

We will be celebrating in style at the end of the run with food, drink, music and a light party.
