Chills multiplied for 2016 Trick or Treat Run London – new experiences announced

17th October 2016

A spine-tingling array of new experiences awaits the runners taking part in the 2016 Trick or Treat Run in Richmond Park, London on Sunday 30th October.  For the first time, Egyptian mummy and ghost pirate zones will join the witches-brew, zombie and pumpkin experiences on the traffic-free course. The unique dual finish which allows runners taking part in each of the 2km, 5km and 10km to choose either a trick or a treat as they cross the line returns, this year with an even bigger set of surprises hidden from view until the last moment.


The Trick or Treat Run medal has also received an upgrade, with all finishers receiving a specially-designed glow-in-the-dark metal medal to prove they were brave enough. Fancy dress is once again highly encouraged (all though by no means obligatory), with prizes for the most impressive outfits.

Nick Rusling, CEO of Human Race Events, said “The first Trick or Treat Run in 2015 proved extremely popular, with entrants young and old really getting into the Halloween spirit. Some of the costumes genuinely sent shivers down my spine! This year the frights and fun will be even bigger, so whether you’re looking for an unforgettable end to half-term for the kids, a novel way to blow off the cobwebs after your Halloween party or just a way to inject a bit of fun into your fitness regime, make sure you join us on October 30th!”.  

All ages and abilities are welcome, with discounts for families and groups of friends, free entry for under-6s and the choice to walk, jog or run the course. Face painting and a range of catering outlets will be on offer in the event village, as well as ample secure bicycle and scooter parking. Dedicated car parking will be available but must be pre-booked online.


Logo&Strap_FINALBreast Cancer Care is again the official charity of the event, and will be helping create some of the fiendish fun in the park. In 2015 their friendly pumpkins invaded the course, encouraging runners to the finish line. Those who sign up are asked to raise as much as they can for this vital organisation to ensure that those affected by breast cancer, and their families, receive the best possible information and support.

Over 1,200 entries have already been sold, with limited places remaining. Entries will close at 9am on Tuesday 25th October or when sold out. To find out more, and to register, head to
