Head torching

This is fun and really sociable!

Free and great fun!

Started in Winter 2011, we  have organised the FREE(voluntary charity donation….) weekly run with head torches strapped to our heads! Runners from all over the area come together and share some new running venues across the Wolds, and occasionally just off piste!

  • Normally 50 plus runners attend
  • We cater for all speeds, as long as you are able to comfortably run the distance specified and not walk.
  • Make sure you have a good head torch and bright clothing
  • Distances of between 5 and 9 miles are covered
  • Meet at a local pub for a good natter about all things running, and have a drink and a bite to eat afterwards.(optional)

All runs will start at 6.30pm unless otherwise stated

Hearty, warming food served afterwards at the fabulous Ship Inn in Barnoldby Le Beck. Please support the pub as these pubs are what enable us to arrange these brilliant headtorches. Michelle will be kindly serving her lovely Beef bourginon and a veggie soup option.


The Ship is a very busy pub so please park sensibly in Barnoldby Le Beck and do not park in the pub car parks.

🔦Safety information🔦

If you intend joining in on these great fun torch runs, please take a couple of minutes to read and digest this safety reminder. We don’t want to detract from you having a great run, but there has to be a degree of understanding on what you need to do.

🏃‍♀️ Please note…your attendance at these runs is purely voluntary. You must turn up dressed in the correct clothing for the weather conditions which includes bright/reflective. 🏃‍♀️

🏃‍♂️You must have a torch which is in good working order. 🏃‍♂️

🏃‍♀️Whilst Mobile phones, medical kits and foil blankets will be taken in the event there is a medical situation, you must make sure you are fit and well on the night🏃‍♀️

🏃‍♂️Whilst we cater for all running abilities, you must be able to comfortably run the advertised distance without stopping. Whilst there will be lots of re-grouping we need to be mindful that runners will soon become cold in the winter if stood still for long periods of time. It is a run not a walk🏃‍♂️

🔦Finally please listen to the safety briefing provided by the run leader. 🔦

Thanks for your support and understanding 👍



The torch runs are free of charge, organised by volunteers. We encourage you to bring some loose change with you and pop it into the charity jar.

The first half of this seasons head torch runs saw £600 raised which has gone to the amazing Operation Christmas Child charity.
