The Petzl Night Trail Running Race Route:

The 10k course starts and finishes at Grizedale Visitors Centre. The course is a single loop which climbs for the first half and then descends for the second half. The climbs are not too steep, but they will certainly test your legs and lungs.

The surface is a mixture of gravel and trail path which is good underfoot. Both the climbs and the descents are gradual rather than steep. The course will be heavily marshalled as well as having directional signs and sticks with reflective tape on. This year we will also have mile markers and Strava segment signs at various points the course.

 

Refreshments:

The Visitor Centre Cafe will remain open and will be serving a variety of refreshments including hot food.

 

Parking:

Parking on the night is free of charge as this has been included in your entry fee. We advise that you arrive early to make your experience of getting through the registration process stress-free. Please follow the signs and marshal instructions on the night to use the dedicated race car parks. It is approximately a 15 minute brisk walk from the furthest car park to the registration area. The walk from the car park will be signed so please have your torch ready.
