The Full Moon San Pedro de Pinatar race is about 9km passing through urban streets, dark country lanes and to top it all 2km across the sand. This for me was the most interesting part. The full moon was covered by cloud so the need for some light was important. Although there were a few runners with head torches not all had remembered to bring them.

For the most part it was nice to let your eyes adjust to the low light and occasional light of another runner but on the beach it was very hard to see though I did still manage a 6min /km pace
Take away tips, take a small hand held light, the head lamps that some runners had looked uncomfortable and were a very bright and glaring that didn't help with the contrast of the darkness.
