Not confident running in the dark - especially off-road? Want to run as part of a relaxed group?  As part of Cumbria's Dark Skies festival we are promoting the joy of trail running at night.

Join Jo from JAG Outdoors for a couple of hours run/jog/walking through the beautiful trails and tracks at Whinlatter.  We will be running by the light of a head torch. Route will be adapted to group ability, allowing faster runners to add distance if they wish, but will generally be between 5 and 10km.

No trail running experience needed but we ask you can run/walk 5km in around an hour. Post run snacks provided!

Well behaved dogs welcome.  Any junior participant must be at least 14 and fully under the care of their accompanying adult.
