The Halloween Howler is a Saturday afternoon/evening trail run that provides the perfect backdrop to an evening of surprises, and maybe a few spooks!! Part of a series designed to introduce people to night running, competitors enjoy a safe and supported 5km loop race under headtorch. The shorter distances are completed before sunset, with the 21k, 42k and 50k pushing into the night.
Safe and supported – yes. But be prepared for some of those strange happenings that only occur at Halloween!
