MND Night Run Wales
Is an endurance running race around a course of approximately 5km; it is a combination of road and trail over a period of 12 hours.
The idea is quite simple:
You complete as many laps as you can in the time allowed. Should you have started a lap before the finish time, you will be able to complete it.
There are lots of different categories in the race and there should be something that appeals to all levels and ability of runner, from novices through to the very experienced.
Night Run Wales starts as the sun begins to set over the park at 2100 finishing 12 hours later at 0900, as the park wakes up and visitors start to arrive for a day of fun.
The venue has showers, toilets and water, all you need to bring are your running shoes, waterproof, head torch, tent (or caravan/motorhome) and your sense of fun and adventure!
12 hour run options Solo: yes that's right just you and your running shoes, complete as many laps as you can in the time allowed.
There are two solo categories under 40 and over 40. This category normally sells out first.
Pairs: a team of 2 which means you can hand over to someone if you're tired, wet, injured or you just fancy a brew. There are male, female and mixed pair categories available.
Teams: 3-5 so you can spread the load. This requires strategy and planning or perhaps just arriving at transition to find no-one there and then shouting very loudly until your cries are heard!! It also means that not everyone needs amazing lights with plenty of opportunity to recharge both yours and the lights battery.
Teams: 5-8 even more chance to grab 40 winks before your next effort, the emphasis for these teams is that it is just for fun and will not be entered into the premes.
Corporate Teams: There will be opportunities for corporate teams to match their metal against other business to see who will reign supreme. Tactical racing will be needed for those teams who are going for gold with three premes throughout the night they will start at 12 midnight, 3am and 6am, with prizes for the fastest 5km within that hour. The premes are three 5km races, each competitive team will use their fastest runner to complete a 5km loop to become the su-preme champion of the hour
