Join us for our very second virtual Halloween 5 Nite Run!

  • Official race number

  • Goody bag

  • Postage and packaging

  • Prizes for best fancy dress and faster runners

  • No minimum age limit

We will be co-ordinating our start with the Live Event in Reading at 8pm (GMT), and our aim is for as many of you to be running at the same time, BUT you will be able to start at anytime on 31st October! As long as you complete your 5km run on Halloween you will be an official finisher and will be added to our results page!

How will it work?

  • You enter the virtual run online and we will post you your medal, event number and goody bag in October so it will be with you ahead of Halloween. You will have a choice between either our Sugar Skull Medal OR the Horrorwood Medal during sign up.

  • Join our Facebook Chat Group and we will have a live stream of the Reading event to count you down for your start.

  • Post photos of your time, fancy dress and medal on our Facebook Chat Group or Twitter feed and you will automatically be in our draw for fastest runners and best fancy dress.

  • Prize categories are:

    • Fastest runners

    • The runner who enjoys themselves the most and what we mean by this is it takes you the longest to finish your 5km!

    • Best fancy dress in any scary outfit (1st, 2nd & 3rd place prizes)

    • Best fancy dress as a evil movie character (1st, 2nd & 3rd place prizes)

    • Worst fancy dress and by this we mean you've tried but scored an epic fail, for example your ghost outfit is a sheet with two holes it it!
