Half the time but not half the fun! Running through the shortest night for those with a cup-half-full mentality

12 hours of trail running provides a fantastic opportunity for those new to ultra racing to test themselves. Run solo or organise a team - one team member will be running at any one time. 100km is possible for those running at pace.


The format is simple - complete as many laps as you can of the 4.2 mile off-road course within 12 hours. Run through the shortest night of the year, see our illuminated forest and cheeky reflectives before experiencing the gloaming and a spectacular sunrise!*
