Something Wild Events is no more
Sportiva Events has taken over some of the running races that were previously part of Something Wild Events
Ben Tisdall & Ceri Rees met in autumn 2011 on a night trail run. They later discovered that by massive coincidence they were second cousins, although Ceri’s branch of the family seemed to have most of the sporting talent! And in 2013 launched the Wild Night Run, the first of what became a series of night trail races across the South West.
This year they decided to split up the races that were run as Something Wild Events and to close down the Something Wild Events company with effect from August 2020.
Although the events will now be run separately, they are not going anywhere and providing we have the necessary permissions from landowners, the government and the relevant sporting bodies, will still be going ahead. One of the challenges facing organisers is making sure events can go ahead safely with restricted numbers and with appropriate Covid-19 measures in places. Please keep your eyes open for future announcements.
The Split is as follows

Haldon Night Run on Sat 6th Feb (put back from 28th Nov due to 2nd Lockdown
