We are very excited about returning to the Bath Skyline for another night race which will be taking place on Saturday 11th Jan 2020 at 18:00. The route is very similar to the day time race, but without the steep woodland slope. All runners will need to provide their own torch (head or chest), without it - no run. We will mark out the course with reflective arrows, reflective paint and glow sticks.

The Dark Horse is spooky night run along the Bath hill tops. The route is very flat, aside one little fall and climb mid lap. There are amazing night time views stretching over to Bristol to be seen, along with ghostly sculpture garden featuring the Dark Horse and his entourage. The race is rounded out with a warming bonfire and optional beer and hog roast.

Prices are £2 extra on the day
As there are some narrow and technical sections will be starting the event in waves so everyone has a clear run. There will be waves of about 100-150 runners setting off at 5min or 10min intervals.
Please confer with friend and family before you register to ensure you select the same wave if you wish to start together. The different start times are fully accounted for in the results so you select any wave and be sure of an accurate finish time.
"Loved it. Wish I had had a camera at certain points - crossing under the bridge with the runners above as an example. Looked fab by torch light. Looking forward to the morning! Well done to all organisers and marshals." Nicki Maguire
"Great event, really enjoyed it. Marshals deserve huge credit for all the help & encouragement." Andy Gamble

All our runners receive a top of the range custom medal, as well as a buffet of fresh fruit and other tasty treats. We also recognise a few of the speedy runners on the following basis.
The final number of prizes awarded is determined by the total number of finishers (male and female combined) in a given race distance. If there are more than 100 finishers then the full range of awards are made as shown above. It there are between 50 and 100 finishers then the top 3 male and top 3 female runners will receive a prize. If there are less than 50 finishers then the first male and first female finisher will be awarded a prize. We do not have any winner's prizes for any of the children's events as we would like to keep this participation focused.
