Twilight Run - Haldon
Timed 5k and 10k runs which start during twilight and take you through some of the best woodland Devon has to offer. The Twilight Run is a new event in Haldon Forest Park, Kennford, Exeter, so whether you've got the nerve to run solo, or seek safety in numbers and come as a group, dust off those trail shoes and grab your head torch!
The course is 1 lap for 5k and x 2 laps for the 10k - and nothing makes you run faster than hearing a twig snapping in the trees to the side of the path.
5 km, 10 km
an enjoyable event.
Friendly and enjoyable event will look out for more. Thanks.
Not bad but could be improved
Whilst some of the run was on broad paths, a lot of it was on very narrow twisting paths which meant that overtaking was almost impossible. Having to run very closely behind other runners for considerable stretches meant that I couldn’t enjoy the sense of freedom that is one of the great joys of night trails.
At the finish we were given a medallion but no water. Water was available in the café in the car park but they clearly weren’t expecting anyone as they hadn’t put out any glasses. I’d have willingly swapped the bling for a glass of water and a piece of cake!
