Petzl Night Trail Wales

Taking place on Saturday the 7th of October 2017 at 6.00pm at Coed y Brenin forest park in Wales, the Petzl Night Trail Wales is a race with a difference!

Imagine a runnable 3-4km route, not too technical, with enough elevation to sort out the runners. Imagine a race that starts in the dusk of an Autumn Saturday evening, and ends in full darkness. Imagine an event with a real party atmosphere, with a DJ, bar, hot food and a race arena lit up with flood lights.

As you can imagine too, head torches are mandatory kit for the race and there will be a sea of head lights winding their way through the trails throughout the evening.

The race will be determined by those runners who complete the most number of laps in 3 hours, simple, and you’ll be kept up to date with race commentary and leader board style updates for the leading men, women and teams.

You can expect the same great organisation, welcome, atmosphere and fun of the Trail Marathon Wales event, though perhaps a little colder, and definitely darker. The cafe and balconies at Coed y Brenin will be open all evening too, making for a stadium style viewing gallery.

Entry for the 2017 event opens on 1st of March, 2017 at 9am and has an entry limit of 400 total places. The spaces will comprise 100 solo runners and 100 teams of 3.

The Petzl Night Trail Wales utilises as many local suppliers and contractors as possible and aim to ensure that the local economy and mid-Wales community is affected in positive manner by the event, with that support hopefully being reciprocated ensuring that Petzl Night Trail Wales is an event that the local and national Welsh community can be proud of in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK.

Being on a Saturday, we also hope that may runners and families will stay on for the weekend in one of the numerous local hostels, cabins, hotels and bed and breakfasts that surround Coed y Brenin. Our Useful Links page is a great place to start to book your accommodation.
