Petzl Night Trail Wales
Taking place on Saturday the 8th of October 2016 at 6.00pm at Coed y Brenin forest park in Wales, the Petzl Night Trail Wales will be a race with a difference!
Imagine a runnable 3-4km route, not too technical, with enough elevation to sort out the runners. Imagine a race that starts in the dusk of an Autumn Saturday evening, and ends in full darkness. Imagine an event with a real party atmosphere, with a DJ, bar, hot food and a race arena lit up with flood lights.
As you can imagine too, head torches are mandatory kit for the race and we expect there to be a sea of head lights winding their way through the trails throughout the evening.
The race will be determined by those runners who complete the most number of laps in 3 hours, simple, and you’ll be kept up to date with race commentary and leader board style updates for the leading men, women and teams.
You can expect the same great organisation, welcome, atmosphere and fun of the Trail Marathon Wales event, though perhaps a little colder, and definitely darker. The cafe and balconies at Coed y Brenin will be open all evening too, making for a stadium style viewing gallery.
Entry for the 2016 event opens on 1st of March, 2016 at 9am and has an entry limit of 280 total places. The spaces will comprise 100 solo runners and 60 teams of 3.
Entry fee includes:
- Commemorative Petzl Night Trail Wales momento for all finishers
- Goody bag
- Free parking from 2pm onwards at Coed y Brenin
- A fully marked and marshalled route
- A well stocked feed station
- Electronic Chip Timing with post-race text results
