Adrenaline seekers are to gather at a Lancashire beauty spot for a four mile race at night - wearing head torches.

The No Ego 2014 Head Torch Race, which will take place at Brockholes Nature reserve in Samlesbury, near Preston, will see competitors run by torchlight along trails, paths, rugged terrain and woods around the reserve.

It is the first ever head torch race along tracks and through mud, with runners guided only by head torches and reflective signage.

The four mile course takes place through forestry tracks and trails through Dodd Wood.

The race is on gravel trucking roads and footpath trails

A spokesman said: “Our head torch race is fun and challenging but don’t forget your sense of humour – you will get dirty. Unlike our previous mud races at Penrith and Preston, this is not an obstacle race, apart from ducking to miss branches, avoiding tree roots, running down steep descents, and of course the weather.

“This is a trail race with a difference. It’s a great event to challenge your body and enjoy a well known trail in a different light and get out with friends.

“It’s also the perfect event to keep your fitness levels up during the winter months.”

The event is on Saturday 15 February 2014 at 6pm.

Entry costs £15 on the night and includes parking fees.
