Kielder Dark Skies 10k Trail Race

A fantastic night time trail race held in the heart of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. A great undulating course, taking in some brilliant single track running around the Kielder Forest.

Venue: Kielder Castle Visitor Centre, Kielder Forest Park, Northumberland, NE48 1ER.

Start Time: 1700

Starting and finishing in the grounds of Kielder Castle you will be tackling some of the best trails Kielder Forest has to offer. The course incorporates some brilliant single track running on a wide variety of terrain. Kielder's climate in January will add to the fun! You will either be running in snow, rain or if your lucky a lovely crisp evening under the stars in the dark skies of Kielder.

“Northumberland International Dark Sky Park is England’s first Dark Sky Park and the largest expanse of dark night sky in the whole of Europe, thanks to minimal light pollution”. The star-studded skies above Kielder Water & Forest Park are the darkest in England. The best time for viewing is during the winter months, when the nights are darkest. Combine this with an awesome trail running route on a great mixture of forest trails then what further incentive do you need to pack your head torch, some warm winter gear & experience this amazing night run set in the beautiful confines of Kielder Forest.

This is a great event to bring along family & friends with the route returning back through the finish area part way through, there's plenty of opportunity to offer encouragement.

The course will be fully marked so all you need to do is follow the route & look out for the forest animals...

The Kielder night trail run is open to all abilities of runners.  All runners must run with a head torch and suitable trail shoes.

The event is part of the Kielder Winter Weekend, consisting of the Kielder ten mile trail race held on the same day, followed by the Kielder Off Road Duathlon the following day. Choose whether to take part in either one event, two or all three!

Event includes: Professionally run event, qualified & experienced personnel at various checkpoints, qualified medical support, online registration, fully marked routes, refreshments at finish, unique medal to all finishers.
