Dusk 'til Dawn 2018
The UK's Favourite night race since 2012! Run for your life, from the chasing Grim Sweeper. If he/she/it catches you, you are out! 13, 26 or 50 miles in 14 hours. You choose.
We have had a resounding success in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. It is an event which participants described as "the best ultra they have ever entered", The Grim Sweeper will be back to claim more souls in 2018 and this time he wants cake as well your soul.
Oh, just one more thing... It was all beginning to sound a little too cosy wasn’t it? There’s one character the longer you need to keep looking over your shoulder for. Timing his progress along the whole course with the arrival of dawn, is the Grim Sweeper! If the Grim Sweeper catches you up, then you could be facing retirement for an early breakfast (we did ask if he'd leave his scythe at home but we're not convinced he will...each year he sends more than 25% of souls to the afterlife with a sweep of his scythe!). All we can say, is don't let him catch you up!

We strongly recommend that competitors travelling from outside the area do arrange accommodation, because you will be very tired after finishing the event, which would make driving home straight away potentially unsafe. So, arrange a lift, or use public transport if you do not book accommodation.
