5 Mile Head Torch Run-Trails, Mud and Fun

It's not quite the 31st of October but rumour has it the ghouls and ghosts will be out for this one!  The Ghost Run is a fun, fancy dress (it's not compulsory, but you'll be the odd one out if you don't!) night trail run through spooky woods!  Based near the centre of Cardiff the route follows trails, through fields, pat rivers and through woods on a mixture of hard trail and muddy tracks.  As it's night you'll need a head torch or hand torch to guide your way through the dark - keeping a watchful eye out for creatures of the night!  The event is light hearted and fun, it isn't a serious race, so come for the occasion rather than a personal best!  The route is fully marked with large illuminous yellow signs and reflective tape.  It is also fully marshalled with medical cover on hand to deal with vampire bites and unexpected werewolf transformations.
