Enviromental Policy Update:
Please note that ALL our races are now cup-free which means we will not be supplying cups and you will need to bring your own. We will provide water and squash dispensers and cola bottles for you to pour into your own cup.
Very soon we will have our own branded foldable and reusable cups for sale in our web-shop. You can either get these posted out to you in advance or collect them at registration on race day.
Race Dates – Monday 28th October – Sunday 3rd November 2019
(or if you can’t make it, take the virtual entry option which you can do in your own time and your own location, anytime between 1st October until 4th November)
Note – Our Guy Fawkes Series starts immediately after this Halloween Series finishes, so you have the choice of 14 days of running!!
The Race: Halloween 7in7
The Medals: If you like unique medals – miss these races at your peril! Each day has a unique medal – all themed around spooky ghosts, witches and Halloween. You can choose either the Orange Medal as shown above, or the Green Medal as shown below.
Important Note: With so many race and medal types it is enevitable that each year we sell out either in colour or medal type for a particular day. You can only guarantee your colour or medal type by booking early!! Bookings within four weeks of the event may have either a different colour or medal type depending on demand – SO BOOK EARLY!
In addition there are three different sized medals, available in either Orange or Green:
- The Marathon medal is 100mm diameter
- The Half Marathon medal is 80mm diameter
- The 10k / 5k medal is 60mm diameter
- All with the same design as shown above.
That makes a total of 42 medal options in the Halloween 7in7 series that you can choose from!
Fancy Dress is encouraged and an award will be given for each days chosen best effort.
