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.
What about the famous Wonderland Dinosaurs? During the event we will do our very best to keep them secure, but can sadly take no responsibility if they manage to escape... Sorry!
Facilities: The Visitor Centre will be open before and during Dark Run 2017 and offers both toilet and Café facilities. Please refrain from using the bushes as a toilet... as we do not wish to upset the Park Management or other park users. Many thanks for your understanding!
Parking: The 700-space multi-storey Car Park which is part of the new Southwater Development, is now OPEN and an ideal place to park. Parking between 5pm and 8am, is a flat rate of just £1.
