Would you like to add a little spice to your winter training regime with an event that is 'out of the ordinary'? If so the organisers of the Night Terror might have the answer. This dastardly series of night-time runs through some of the UK's darkest, most frightful forests is not for the faint hearted but definitely for those wanting fun and a twisted thrill over 6 miles of cold-sweat nervous, multi-terrain running. Each runner will have a head torch to light their way but ... you need to be wary of what lurks in the shadows.
Night Terror events are being held in conjunction with Macmillan Cancer Support and organisers are hoping the series will raise thousands of pounds for the charity. Dates include 9 February at Leeds, and 2 March at Manchester.
Race Director and ex-international athlete, John Gladwin told northernrunningguide.com: "This is not your average 10k run. It's a lot of fun running in the dead of night; with scary music, fancy dress costumes and the fear factor. It is a great way to start your 2013 fitness regime and raise money for a great cause. Come and out face your fears."
Runners can enter as an individual or as a team of three in our three categories: women only, men only or mixed teams. Scary fancy dress outfits are encouraged.
The official charity partner for the Night Terror series is Macmillan Cancer Support, who help people living with cancer. Speaking about the event Macmillan Cancer Support's, Ben Ahmed said: "We are really pleased to be official charity partner of the Night Terror series and look forward to welcoming Team Macmillan runners as they take part in this series of unique and fun races"
