In the last few years cheap, powerful LED head torches from manufacturers such as Petzl have made running at night easier than ever before. So back in October 2012, over a pint after a long, muddy run, Ceri Rees and Ben Tisdall got to think about organising a night race.
The Wild Night Run was successfully run, with a few hiccups, in Feb 2013 and has run successfully every year since. This season the series has been expanded into a total of 7 races running through the winter from November to February.
