A new five mile night-time run is taking place this month in Market Harborough to raise funds for Movember, the prostate and testicular cancer appeal.
The ‘Tunnel Vision Night Run’ follows the tracks of the Brampton Valley Way for a five mile race which incorporates the 420m tunnel at Great Oxenden. The race takes place on Thursday, November 26, at 7.30pm.
Runners will navigate their way through the dark night with head torches, running along the traffic-free countryside track, however, when they reach the 420 metre tunnel, they will find it fully lit.
The event is the latest in a series of sporting events created by Race Harborough. Over the past two years they have launched the Harborough Triathlon, Santa Run, Cycling Sportif, Harborough Half Marathon and 10k.
Co-organiser Brian Corcoran said: “The route is a popular one for runners, but they will never have experienced it like this. With hundreds of runners taking part and the tunnel under Great Oxenden lit up it will be a unique experience.”
Organisers are encouraging entries from all abilities, from club runners to first time racers. Entries must be made in advance via www.raceharborough.co.uk. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
