Organiser's Description

The poor Elves have found themselves way behind and need to run a nighshift to get all of the toys and gifts finished. The Night Elf Trail is a 6.2 mile (10k) narative trail race (there are no marshals. There will be a few arrows and glow sticks but mostly you follow written instructions) following a circular route from Maldon towards Purleigh. The route is 95% off road on a variety of terrain. For your safety you will be expected to run with a mobile of the same number that you have left with registration. You will also need a torch (not your phone), no torch no race.

The race starts and finishes at West Maldon Community Centre. When you reach the finish you will recieve a well earned medal.
