Join us for a guided trail run around the Castle Howard Estate.

As part of the Dark Skies festival we are working with Trail Running Yorkshire and LightUp U to take you on a off road trail run that will take in parts of the Castle Howard Estate you may not have seen before.

The run will be suitable for all and will be guided with a trail leader and back marker, so if you are an experienced runner or want to give running at night a go for the first time you'll be looked after. The distance will be approximately 7K and will be multi terrain, but the ethos is go at your own pace and our team of comrades will be running the route at a range of paces. The event will go ahead whatever the weather so dress appropriately.

Suitable for 18+ and we require you to fill in the disclaimer and ParQ forms on the Trail Running Yorkshire website. Please bring these with you on the night.

Meet in the Courtyard between 6.30pm and 6.45pm ready for a briefing and 7pm departure.

You'll need a head torch, however if you don't have one then LightUp U will be selling them on the night or you can hire one from Trail Running Yorkshire.
