#BRIGHTERNIGHTS

HAUGHLEY PARK

 

BRIGHTER NIGHTS  is a series of after-dark trail running events that take place at unique venues in East Anglia.  We use exciting lighting effects to pick out interesting features such as spectacular mansions and natural features. The courses are marked with reflective signs - all you need is a head torch and some grippy trail trainers. There is a virtual option too!


Set in 250 acres of beautiful Suffolk parkland, Haughley Park is a privately-owned country estate. Surrounded by ancient woodlands and excellent trails and paths with a stunning Jacobean manor house at its heart. The 5K course meanders through the estate with some of the best features lit up for you to enjoy. The first wave of runners starts at 4:30pm with the last wave setting off at 8pm. There will be waves of 15 runners every 10 minutes.
