Gato Sports Head Torch 10k - February

Salcey Forest, Northamptonshire NN7 2HX ​

Organiser's Description

A 2 lap traffic free course in Salcey Forest, which is a very flat forest and the footpaths are well formed. Of course a forest in Winter will be mucky, slippy and muddy, but the route is on established pathways. And running at night is awesome! You must have a headtorch to run. If you also want to wear fairy lights, glow sticks or paint yourself in fluorescent paint, feel free!

We will have a small area under the gazebo where the aid station is where you can leave a bag but it is not 'secure', so it is left at your own risk entirely.

Unlike our other events we will have some biodegradable/compostable cups with water and elctrolyte available on the course, and we will have hot drinks available before and after too. If you have a foldable cup you can bring, even better, but we don't insist on it for our short races.

Gato Sports are our event partners and have donated prizes for male and female first place finishers.

Open to entrants aged over 17yrs.

Won't it be dark?

Yes... That it sort of the point - and it's awesome! You must have a headtorch to run.If you want to wear fairy lights, glow sticks or paint yourself in fluorescent paint, feel free. Just make sure you have something to light the way. It'll be dark, as in pitch black eyes closed dark. You will not be allowed to race without a headtorch, your mobile phone torch will not do. We won't be floodlighting the route..! If you've never run at night it is brilliant - maybe have a go beforehand... We will have some social night runs with some Gato Sports gear to trial before the event - keep an eye on our Facebook page
