Head torch racing is fun and challenging; don't forget your sense of humour. You will get dirty, so be prepared. This is not an obstacle race, apart from ducking to miss branches, avoiding tree roots and running down steep decents. If you don't have a head torch a decent one can be purchased from around £20.00 or just use a hand held torch.

Head Torches  WILL NOT be available to purchase on the night.
