Are there any age restrictions? All participants under the age of 16 (15 and under), will be required to stay with a parent/guardian for the duration of the event. Any finishers under the age of 16 who arrive at the finish area without a parent/guardian, will not receive a medal/goody bag as they have breached our event rules.
Facilities: The toilets will be open before and during Dark Run 2019. Please refrain from using the bushes as a toilet, as this is a National Trust property!
Can I take part with my Dog? Unfortunately, due to previously highlighted safety concerns, we no longer allow dogs (or other pets) to take part in Dark Run events.
Parking: Please note that you MUST be in the car park by 6pm as the gates will be closed and you WILL NOT be able to enter after this time. The route takes part on the access road, therefore this is essential. Thanks for your understanding.
