Due to a double booking by the Forestry Commission this event will be re-scheduled to a new date in 2015
The Dodd Wood head torch race will be the first in our Winter series for 2014/2015.
How do fancy a run through the SPOOKY trees of Dood Wood?
Then dig deep into you collection of scary masks and add a bit of fake blood for good measure.
The 5 mile course takes place on the tracks and trails through Dodd Wood. This race will be on gravel trucking roads and footpath trails through the forest. 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. These will not be available to purchase on the night.
Fancy dress isn't compulsory, but highly recommended.
The minimum age for this event is 16 years old.
