Expect mud… and lots of it! Balgone was the site of a Total Warrior, so has the potential to be the muddiest of the series!

The course will be completely way-marked and marshalled. Keep an eye out for the signage as it is easy to go wrong when the lights are down.

Balgone is unique for its topographical features. With rocky crags and low lying valleys, Balgone provides a completely different experience to any of the other FoxTrail runs!

Run with your dog!

You can enter all our 5K races in 2022 with your dog. All dogs must be on a canicross harness or collar and lead and you must clean up after them. You will set off 10 minutes after the main runners. This will be a non-competitive event meaning you will not be timed.


5km Night Run

Grab your best headtorch and join us for the only night run of the series. We will take you on a mixture of forest trails and open farmland. Keep your wits about you as there may be some muddy patches.

There will be no lighting on the course so make sure you have a fully working head torch and some spare batteries or a spare torch just in case.

This family run farm on the outskirts of North Berwick is the perfect place for a night time adventure, heading out through woodland and on to muddy farmland. You may need to watch your step as it can get a little muddy underfoot.

Get Directions

Race car-parking will be in a field on the Estate. Please follow the directions of marshals.


What should I wear?

It is winter so bring something warm to wear for before and after the race. For the race wear run clothing suitable for the weather on the day and make sure you are in your trail shoes, on-road trainers are not advised.

What else do I need?

This event takes place in the dark so make sure you bring a fully functioning head torch. We would suggest you also bring a spare torch and some replacement batteries just in case.

Do I need full waterproofs?

We are not going up any massive hills on these events so you do not need to carry full hill kit. You may want to bring a waterproof jacket and extra layer just in case the weather gets chilly.

Can I run with my dog? 

We have limited entries for our 5k series for those wishing to run with a dog. Make sure you keep your dog on a harness or short lead whilst running and be sure to clean up after it if it makes a mess.
