DAWN CHASERS -  A RANGE OF NIGHT ENDURANCE EVENTS -  RELAY TRAIL/MULTI TERRAIN RUNS, 100+KM SPORTIVES, MOUNTAIN HIKES, RELAY MOUNTAIN BIKE RACES AND EVEN A NIGHT CLIMB WITH A SLEEPOVER ON A CLIFF FACE.

Dawn Chasers is a series of tough endurance events which run through the night. Participants will challenge themselves physically and mentally in a well organised and supported event that will reward participants with a incredible experience, great coffee and a damn good breakfast.  The format of each event is different in order to appeal to different types of participant- whether that be in terms of budget, fitness, amount of commitment required to train or the level of challenge. They all share a common theme though - they are tough and run throughout one night with the aim to finish at Dawn.


'There is something about the night that triggers an instinctual caution.  Things seem tougher at night.  What was once familiar becomes unknown and with it a degree of fear, logic tells us that there’s little to be scared of, but that unexpected noise or strange movement puts us on edge. With eyesight diminished all other senses are heightened and the mind works overtime to make sense of it.   With body and mind tired from both physical exertion and from fighting the natural need for sleep that comes with the onset of night, it all becomes harder still.
Then comes the light; the unmissable and unstoppable Dawn - bringing hope, relief, a clearer perspective or just comfort that the nights struggles are nearly over.  Doubts diminish, the dark fades and, as the sun rises, our minds turn to the enjoyment of the challenge, but relief that it’s over…'

'Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise’ Victor Hugo
