Join us for a Night Run

Night running at Nostell, West Yorkshire

Our national season of night-time trail running events is organised in partnership with Cotswold Outdoor. Whether you're a walker, first-time runner or experienced off-roader, we have a fun event for you.

Our 2016/2017 Night Run series has now finished. The next series of Night Runs will begin in autumn 2017, check back for future details.

Our series of Night Run events

Night Run is a national series of night-time trail running events, with thousands expected to take part. If you've ever wanted to run around the gardens of a Tudor manor house at night, or explore ancient woodlands after dark, then Night Run gives you the chance. As well as exploring National Trust places in a new light, every penny raised goes straight back into the places hosting Night Run so that you and many others can continue to enjoy running or walking in these unique locations for years to come.

A unique experience: what to expect on a Night Run

We've got lots of activities at our places, but this night-time event gives you the chance to experience our special places in an entirely different way.

Night Run events are about having fun, being social and exploring the outdoors. Whether you're a walker, first-time runner, experienced off-roader or even a family looking for adventure, these events will have something for you.

You'll be able to choose from our Explorer route (1-3km) or our Adventurer route (6-9km). They are totally traffic-free, mostly on paths and trails and if you'd rather walk than run, you're more than welcome.
