*Update 18.3.2020: England Athletics has suspended all events until the end of April. That means we won’t do any recce runs. But we will wait and see what happens over the next few weeks before we decide whether our races from June onwards can proceed. We’re missing you guys and hope you’re all taking care.*
COMPANY OF RUNNERS have dreadful delight to invite you to a Friday night of frights on the Flitch Way.
Well before witching hour an assembly of ghouls, goblins, ghosts, monsters and vampires will await your passage as you travel under a combination of moonlight and headtorch light from Rayne Station to Bannister Green Halt and back. About five frightful miles.
This is a timed event with a start window between 6.30 and 7pm. Competitors may start at any time within this window.
Please note that there are no checkpoints on the route, just the start and finish at the Rayne Scout Hall.
There will be no entries available on the day, and runners are not permitted to run with dogs under UK Athletics regulations. This event is held under UK athletics rules. A Trail Running Association permit has been applied for. We cannot permit participants aged under 18.
The trail is a mixture of surfaces so trail shoes are recommended.
All abilities welcome particularly those new to trail running.
Headtorches and an iron nerve are both mandatory!
** Online Registration closes at 8pm on the day before the race. **
