30th October 2020 at 1930 hours

Back for a third year, Run the Blades – the Night One, will be incorporated in to the rescheduled main Run the Blades event due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Due to our drive to maintain social distancing, we’re capping the event to try to reduce congestion in and around the Event Village.  Runners take to the trails in the dark with the trail lit only by glow sticks and the strength of their own head torch.

Think you know Run the Blades? Try again. At just over a 10K don’t expect this to be easy as you run the trails with the turbine blades sweeping out of sight above your head. Bring your head torch and a sense of adventure.
