Are you a keen runner with a like for a fright? Well we have just the event for you here at Thames Valley Park this Halloween night. The Circus comes to town as this year's theme is all the fun and fear of the big top!
On Monday 31st October at 8pm here at Thames Valley Park the Halloween Circus is coming to town. You will need to run a personal best on this fun scare run - you could say you should run like your life depends on it! Join your friends and family in a dash across the moonlit meadows and through darkened woods. See your breath hit the cool night air as your pulse quickens as you make your way through the twists and turns of the TVP terrain in the panic of what Halloween tricks and treats may appear in your path!
The entry for the race is online ONLY, so head to the Halloween5niterun website and click the coffin to sign up! Please note that this run has a limit of 750 runners and the sign up is first come first served. Unfortunately people will not be able to sign up on the night of the race so to avoid disappointment get online and pop your name down now.
The race HQ is the Wokingham Waterside Centre here at TVP and parking on the night is just adjacent to the race venue within Oracle Corporation campus. On arrival to TVP there will be parking direction signs to follow so you shouldn't have any trouble locating a spot. When you get to Race HQ you will pick up a race pack containing your number and chip - these can be collected from 6pm and are only available to collect on the night, not before. As it's going to be a spooky night there will be a limited stock of head torches to purchase on the evening, so to avoid disappointment and a dash in complete darkness we suggest bringing along your own. Please note merchandise purchases on the night are cash payment only so make sure you pop to the ATM beforehand.
We will be giving out a 1st place award to both a female and male runner who pit the rest of our racers to the post and everyone who takes part will receive a memento to mark the achievement.
There will be pre/ post race water but NO water on the course so make sure you get your fill before starting the 5k. We will also have FREE hot drinks including tasty pumpkin soup at Race HQ.
The run is open to people of all abilities and we expect this year's to be a scream. There has been tons of excitement and interest so far so don’t miss out on an All Hallows’ Eve to remember. So grab your running trainers and some courage for the running event of your life at Thames Valley Park, Monday 31st October starting 8pm. Did we mention that fancy dress is strongly encouraged, scary circus theme is the suggested attire. We find it helps the runners blend in with the ghouls!!
See you there..... If you DARE!
