Night racing on trails returns to Bristol for the second year with our new event in the night running calendar Back to Black. It’s in Leigh Woods and is the last in our series. We also now have a kids race for children aged 2-11 an hour before the main races.

Both races will start at Leigh Woods, a popular spot for night running in Bristol. You’ll be starting just as it gets dark so a head torch is essential. The running surface is generally fairly smooth so ideal for beginners and fast runners alike. And we’ve booked the Anchor Ham Green pub for the Prize Presentation after the race.

Race entry includes: electronic chip timing, fully marked out course using poles, arrows & flashing lights , feed station, Birch wood finisher’s medal, bottled water for all finishers,  free number transfer if you are unable to run, prizes (see FAQ) & spot prizes (via our free to join Strava club).

Team Competition & Series Points

We now have an optional team competition. If you don’t have a team use your club name which will also qualify for the team competition. The team’s time is the time of the first three team members to cross the line added together. Your best 3 results from 7 races count for Series Points. However if you only manage a couple of races you’ll still appear in the results
