On Sunday 29 October, Manchester’s Heaton Park will play host to a wicked new spooky running event for the city. The event, organised in collaboration with the children’s charity Dreams Come True and race organisers Sports Tours International, will be a spooky 5k with participants encouraged to take part dressed up as ghosts and ghouls.
Open to runners of all abilities and ages, the 5k will utilise Heaton Park, one of Manchester’s most iconic open spaces with a total coverage of around 600 acres. The setting will also incorporate the grade one-listed 18th century Heaton Hall, the perfect backdrop for some spine-tingling fun with a number of activities and attractions planned.
Graham Jackson of Sports Tours International explained how thrilled the event organisers were to be working with the charity, which enriches the lives of children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions: “We are delighted to be delivering Dreams Come True’s first ever event in the North West and to be able to deliver a short distance fun run that’s suitable for all ages and ability levels is ideal.
Graham added: “This new Halloween Fun Run at Heaton Park gives them the perfect platform in the North West to extend their reach and awareness.”
All finishers of the Dreams Come True Halloween Fun Run will receive a very special glow-in-the-dark medal. Early Bird race entry is just £16 per person or a group ticket for four people is just £40 with £1 of every entry going direct to the charity.
