Following on from the success of last year’s sell-out Market Harborough night time run in aid of Movember, the event will be returning next month.
The five mile ‘Tunnel Vision’ race follows the tracks of the Brampton Valley Way, incorporating the 420m tunnel at Great Oxenden. The original ‘night run’ will take place at 7.30pm on Thursday 17th November followed by the new event for this year ‘dawn run’ which begins on the following morning, Friday 18th November at 6:30am.
Runners will navigate their way with head torches, running along the traffic-free countryside track. However, when they reach the 420 metre tunnel they will find it fully lit. Runners of the ‘dawn run’ will enjoy a sunrise too.
“We can’t wait for this! Last year was a community-strong spirited event, and this year looks like it’s going to be the same,” explains Amy Kingston, co-organiser at Race Harborough. “Some people prefer running in the morning runs and some favour the evening. So we decided to split this year’s Tunnel Vision into two separate events: the night run and the dawn run. Of course some people want to do both”
Kerry Aspinwall, attendee of Tunnel Vision 2015, commented: “It was an amazing event, and for a really good cause too!”
Entry is £15 for a single race and £20 for both. A donation of £2.00 will be taken from the each entry and donated to Mo’ket Harborough. There is a limit of 500 spaces. Closes at midnight on 14th November.
In 2015, the race raised over £1,500 for Movember, the prostate cancer appeal.
The top three male and female finishers will be awarded with their special trophies at the end of the race. There will also be a ‘Best Mo’ award sponsored by The Grooming Rooms and the ‘Best Fundraiser’ award this year who will also receive some bottled beer, donated by Duncan Murray Wines.
Remember not to leave it too late to register. Once all of the spaces have gone, your chance will be gone.
