The Whinlatter head torch race will be the second in a series of No Ego Challenges in 2014/2015.
The 5 mile course takes place on the tracks and trails through Whinlatter Forest. The only official mountain forest in England.
This race will be on gravel trucking roads and footpath trails through the forest. Head torch race 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 they can be purchased for around £10.00 or just use a hand held torch.
Head torches WILL NOT be on sale on the night of the event.
