About Dark Skies Run

Who are Dark Skies Run.

Dark Skies Run Philosophy

The Dark Skies Run Team are here to find beatiful places to in the darkest parts for UK and Europe.

We believe the trails and national parks of the North should be enjoyed by all, this is why our events take part in National Parks, National Trust land, Forestry Commission Land, Sites of Special Scientific Interest. As we believe these little gems go unlooked by runners as a whole, and we want to encourage all to enjoy them responsibly.

As a North East based events company we also believe in using local suppliers for our event to promote Trail Running in the North East as much as possible, that is why we have teamed up and partnered with companies like SCOTT Sports as our event partner, whose UK office is based right here in the North East.

D & P Trophies as our event trophy suppliers who are a North East company.

Northumbrian Water and The Forestry Commission as our event partners at the Dark Skies Run at Kielder Water and Forest Park.

The Scottish Foresty Commission as our events partners at the Darks Skies Run at Kirroughtree Visitors Centre.
