The National Trust also hosts a national series of night-time trail running events, organised in partnership with Cotswold Outdoor. Your entry fee will go towards the property hosting the event, supporting essential conservation work that's needed to look after these special places.

In the East of England, night runs will be taking place at Blickling and Wimpole Estate, where 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 if you'd rather walk than run, you're more than welcome. Here's all you need to know about our Night Run series and details of how to book your place.
