Storm the Fort is the second event in the ‘Dark Skies Series’ of night trail running events, a four event series spanning from Brean Down in Somerset to Baggy Point in North Devon.
Comprising of 5km and 10km route options, Storm the Fort utilises Brean Down, a ridge like land mass that protrudes into the Bristol Channel between Weston-Super-Mare and Burnham on Sea to deliver a 5km, traffic free course on the down that even enters the old World War II fort buildings to really add to the atmosphere! 2 laps are completed for the 10km.
This course has a couple of cheeky climbs to access the down but all on good trails and tracks. Making your way around the course you’ll climb steeply onto the down before a nice steady section out to the fort before climbing a short technical section to gain the main ridge before dropping back down to the finish line! A clear night will make for stunning. night time view across to South Wales and back towards Weston. It’s a stunning venue to run at night, you won’t be dissapointed
Registration will open at 18:15, 10km starts at 19:25 and the 5km starts at 19:35.
