Dark Halloween 10k Night Trail Race

Tracey has gathered her coven and dusted off her broomstick as Jolly Running are once again venturing into the woods of Cockington on Halloween night for our Dark Halloween 10k trail race.   

Both the 5k and 10k races start from our race hq at Cockington Court Manor House in Torquay, this majestic Manor House has a medieval history and is the perfect setting on Halloween. Our Dark Halloween 10k will take you on a spooktacular route through Cockington woods, fields, trails and tracks and on into the enchanting Scadson woods for more hills, woodland trails and a stream crossing before bringing you back to Cockington.

Cockington is one of my go to places to enjoy the trails. Trail running in the dark is enchanting and a completely different experience to running in the daylight.

Our 10k route is very challenging, not for the faint hearted on Halloween!! You'll definitely encounter hills and technical trails. The terrain ranges from gravel paths, grass tracks, rooty woodland trails, a stream crossing and a short road section of 250 metres. 

YOUR SAFETY IS ALWAYS MY TOP PRIORITY and all the routes are heavily marshalled by friends, family and members of the running community most of them are runners themselves, the course is also marked with flashing light sticks, reflective arrows, barrier tape and reflective tape.

Your welfare is the most important factor to me therefore head/chest torches are mandatory kit on both the 5k & 10k distances along with a fully charged mobile phone for emergencies and in case your head torch fails. 

For your safety we operate a strict No head/chest torch No run policy. We will check you have your torch before giving you your race number, unfortunately we cannot provide head torches if you forget yours. Please also wear reflective or bright gear if possible so you are seen from behind by other runners.

Mandatory kit for the 5k & 10k is a head/chest torch & a fully charged mobile phone in case of emergency or if your head torch fails. It would be impossible to run without a torch as it will be pitch black on the countryside trails and forests.

Fancy dress is not mandatory but is definitely encouraged, it's Halloween!! Who doesn't dress up on Halloween??? if wearing fancy dress please bear in mind that you'll be running through woodland trails with branches etc, we don't want anyone tripping up on their mummy bandages or broomsticks.  There will be a Jollification Station halfway and refreshments at the finish.   

Minimum Age 18+ on race day.

Every finisher gets a Dark Halloween 10K medal and a Jolly Running Halloween muff/bandana. 

Prizes for the 1st,2nd and 3rd man and lady.
