We haven’t been able to host our Dark races for a little while, thanks to the impact of Covid. But they are back for 2022, and we can’t wait!
There are three races in the Dark Dash Series 2022. If you opt to do all three, you can earn yourself a bonus wooden Dark Dash Series medal. Each race has two distance options, and to enter the series you need to be signed up for all three of the shorter distances or all three of the longer distances. You can also enter each of the Dark races individually without being part of the series.
For this year, the Dark Dash Series consists of the following events:
- Monday 31st October 2022 – Trick or Treat Halloween Run – 5 Miles, 10 Miles
- Saturday 12th November 2022 – Dark Valley – 10K, Half Marathon
- Saturday 28th January 2023 – Dark Moors – 5 Miles, 10 Miles
All the races take place at Moors Valley Country Park. Entries will open for the three races and the Dark Dash Series in the summer.
If you have a carried over place from Dark Valley or Dark Moors in a previous year, then these have rolled forward to these new dates automatically.
If you had a place in the Run DMC event, which was due to make up the third race in the Dark Dash Series 2021, then this place will be transferred to the new Trick or Treat Halloween Run instead. If this doesn’t work for you, then you can opt to use your place for our new Mapperton Muddle event in December instead, but this isn’t part of the Dark Dash Series. And if neither of these dates work, you can also transfer to any other race you wish that is open with spaces. See our Race Transfer information here. As we imported your entry manually, you will need to contact us to make a transfer and we would appreciate it if you could let us know as soon as possible – we would like to deal with all previous entrants before we open the event for new entries.
The Dark Dash Series entries from previous years have been transferred to our new entry system, Clubtrac, and you should have had an email from us when we did this. This would have been a long time ago, so you may not remember getting it! If you need to import this to your Clubtrac account, but you can’t find this email with your booking details, just send us an email and we can provide you with your booking reference and PIN.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Moors Valley this year for our three Dark Dash Series races!
