The second race in the Petzl series takes place at Grizedale Forest. The start and finish venue is based at Grizedale Visitors Centre, in the Lake District, which is ideal venue for families and supporters. As with all our night runner races, fancy dress is actively encouraged and the theme for Grizedale is “Christmas Festivities”. There’s a free kids race with medals for everyone, there will be Christmas carols and Santa might even make an appearance! Get in the festive mood, join us for the Petzl Night Runner Grizedale.

What do I need to enter:
The route is fully marked with reflective signs, but you will need a good quality head torch or hand held torch to light the track ahead so you can safely get round the course. The terrain is varied and often very muddy, so road shoes are not adequate. Ensure that you have good quality trail or fell type shoes, with an aggressive tread. As it’s winter, you’ll need warm clothing and we recommend everyone carries or wears a wind or waterproof jacket. The minimum age for the 10k event is 16 on the day, although there is a free 1k event for young children on the night.
How much to enter:
The cost to enter the Petzl night trail running race is £25, which includes car parking, your t-shirt and a finisher’s medal. Entries will close either at 12 noon on the Thursday prior to the event or when the event fills, whichever occurs first.
