18 Dec Race Results- 1/12/2017 – Night time 10k & 5k & 2/12/2017 – Nocturnal Ultra Marathon
Race 2 – Race results!
Night time 10k & 5k
The favourite of many FoxTrail runners is our iconic night time 10k! So following the launch of our 5k series last year we thought it was only fair we let the 5k runners in on the fun too!
Supported by East Lothian Councils Saltire Week, the race marquee and lighting in the trees makes this a night to remember!
The 5k kicked of first, for many runners their first event in the dark and the tension and excitement in the race marquee was electric. The 5k course set the standard for the 10k, the same loop was used but in the 10k the runners looped round through the race marquee where spectators of friends and family were able to shout support as the runners dashed through the tent before heading back out into the dark .
A huge congratulations to all runners in the 5k and 1ok events, as ever the atmosphere was amazing thanks to the brilliant community of supportive and encouraging regular runners who attend the events, we love to see familiar faces and watch the FoxTrail community grow!
Nocturnal Ultra Marathon
The first ever Nocturnal Ultra Marathon kicked off at 4pm on the eve of the 2nd December and saw both teams and solo runners tackle 6 hours of continuous running over a 5k loop. The aim of the game- to cover as much distance as possible over the 6 hours and the runner who ran the furthest was to be named the champion!
An amazing atmosphere and amazing response from runners! We will be sharing blog posts from runners giving their insights into the run so watch this space!
