We will be making some changes to the course to keep it fresh for you but overall it will be pretty similar, so if you have a time to beat, this is your shot!
Do you have a refund policy?
Quick Answer: Yes
The refund policy is the same for all events under the Forest Run Fest banner. Find out more here.
Is there mandatory kit?
Quick Answer: Yes - for the Moonlight.
Can I bring my dog?
Quick Answer: Unfortunately not
The Moonlight Edition and all of it's distances require you to have a headlamp, a high vis vest and a whistle. These can be purchased during online registration.
In 2020 we are aiming to go 100% cupless in an attempt to reduce our wastage of
single-use plastic cups. By making small changes such as this, we hope to get you all thinking about how we use plastic! It's advisable to bring a flask or hydration bladder that you can keep topped up during the race. You’ll also be able to fill it; before, during and after the race with some high quality H2O!
Please leave your furry friend at home as they are not permitted in the start pen. They will be excited to see you and your medal when you return home!
