5K

The Torchlight Trail follows the same run route as the Sandman Sprint Triathlon, only this time it's by head torch light! The run takes place on the rugged trails of Newborough Forest. Running through the trees and down along the sand dunes is both wonderful and gruelling. The last 1.5km is almost entirely on sand but it only makes the accomplishment all the more rewarding.

You must be at least 15 years old to take part in this race.
