Join us for a Night Run

Runnners at night at Saltram, Devon

Night Run is a national series of night-time trail running events, organised in partnership with Cotswold Outdoor.

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. Whether you're a walker, first-time runner or experienced off-roader, we have a fun event for you.

Our series of Night Run events

Night Run events help us to support essential ongoing conservation work. Your entry fee will go towards the property hosting the event so you can be sure your money is being spent on conserving our special places.


We’ll be announcing our 2018 - 2019 Night Run events soon. They'll be happening at many of our places between October 2018 – March 2019.


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.
