Runners are being given the rare opportunity to explore Tyntesfield by night on Saturday 3 December.

The National Trust estate just outside of Bristol is hosting its third annual Night Run as part of a series of trail running events held at National Trust sites across the country. The aim is to allow visitors to explore these special places after-hours and to give and promote fitness during the cold winter months.

There are two courses; an Explorer 2k for those less experienced and an Adventurer 7k for those seeking more of a challenge. Entry tickets include on-site catering, well-marked reflective course signage, event marshals, timing and results service.

Events Officer, Hugh Harris said: ‘our Night Run is open to anyone, regardless of fitness level – it’s just a great way of getting out in the fresh air and a great chance to experience estate by night.’
