There's something special about trail running.
Perhaps it's the fresh air, perhaps it's turning off the headphones and being in tune with your surroundings, or perhaps it's the sense of adventure as you leap over branches, try not to slip in mud, and race down tricky, technical hills...
Whatever it is, trail running is fun, and here are a few events coming up that you should definitely lace up your shoes for!
Trails Plus Night Series Race 3
The concept of a 3 race night series is to provide an opportunity for runners of all levels to enjoy a low-key, grass-roots style, yet well supported, trail running event. It was created particularly for those considering the next challenge that will take them past daylight and into the sphere of night time running, guided solely by the light of their torch and perhaps a running buddy at their side in support. It is an opportunity to experience the heightening of senses, taking in the many night time trail noises - there's no danger, but it's just what happens!
