The course is comprised of two 2.5km laps around one of the venues paths. Once you have completed your lap please make your way down the finish straight and to the glow party. The surface is predominately on tarmac roads with some small excursions onto soft standing for some of the Glow Zones. The course is marked using flashing arrows and strobe lights. Please note. You must wear a head torch when taking part in the event (Buy Here) as the course is not specifically lit for the event. It is a night fun run and therefore some areas of the course will be dark in between the Glow Zones. Please use your headtorch and proceed with caution.
