|Haldon Night 10k & 5k

This time however you will be starting and finishing next to the main Haldon car park, near the Ridge Cafe.It is the third in our four part night running series. As for all our night races head torches are essential.
NB: The organisers reserve the right to change the route if it is deemed necessary due to tree felling. However in the event of this being necessary, we will try to ensure this is as close to 10km as possible and off road. We’ve also just added a 5k option! Read more about the race here

The final race in our night series, on Saturday 14th March is The Moonlight Flit, first run in May 2013 and back for 2015.
