After three previous events in Sheffield, Plymouth and Exeter, Nostell Priory (near Wakefield) is next up to host the exciting National Trust night-time trail run this Saturday (29 November). The series, which spans over 12 locations, has been organised to make the most of the unique locations the National Trust looks after.
All the routes are 100% traffic free and are mostly on paths and trails rather than tarmac. The events will all be held in the evening, with participants being set off in waves using head torches to follow the trails, and will allow runners to make the most of the dark winter nights.
Runners are able to choose from the Explorer route (1-2km) or Adventurer route, which is slightly further at around 6-9km. With the split in distance, the events appeal to everyone from families looking for adventure to seasoned runners wanting to experience something different.
The Nostell Priory run will take participants through the 18th century architectural masterpiece, landscape park and gardens. Built on the site of a medieval priory, Nostell has been the home of the Winn family for 300 years.
