Hazelbank 'Running Scared' 5 or 1 mile run

Halloween themed running event
£14 Main Run (affiliated)
£16 Main run (unaffiliated)

£6 Fun Run

Registration open soon.

Sunday 13th October might seem a little early for Ghosts and Ghouls but we are conscious there are a few other big events at the end of October that no doubt many of our regulars have registered for. So we are trying not to clash.

The Running Scared Route is the same route as our very popular Hazelbank Christmas Run.

Spooky attire is encouraged. Skeletons, witches, zombie-brides and evil clowns, the choice is yours but there will be prizes for the best costumes so think outside the box.

All finishers of the main run get a Running Scared medal, fun runners will get a smaller medal - photo to follow.

We will have the 1 mile fun run for families (assuming you consider spooky things jumping out from the trees at you, fun! please let young children know in advance what to expect) just £6 to enter. Entrants may be more interested in getting round that eerie mile before any of our spooky marshals get to them.. or maybe they are more interested in finding hidden murder weapons?! Bring any of the hidden murder weapons back to the finish line and receive a reward.
Photos of the exact missing weapons to follow...
Meet back at the bowling club after both races for a Halloween party.

Event details below please contact us if you have any other queries.

The 5mile run will start at 11am
The 1mile run will start at 11.10am

On-the-day Registrations
On-the-day registrations will be available if we have not sold out. However we recommend online registration as the event sold out last year and we actually had to turn people away on the day as we hadn't enough medals.
Numbers are capped at 200.

Getting there:
Registration is at the bowling club, to the left as you enter the park.
The address is:
Hazelbank Park, Shore Road, BT37 9JQ.

There will be some car parking available at the park, additional cars will need to park on nearby streets, please car share where possible.

5 Mile route
The 5 mile route starts with a lap around the park before descent down to the shore path. It will then head out to Jordanstown Park, and back again. This is a flat route with one hill linking the upper park to the shore path. The route incorporates some beautiful views across Belfast Lough.

The route will be fully marked out at every mile. There will also be marshals along the way to guide you.
There will be water at the finish line but not along the route. So feel free to take a bottle with you if you think you will need it.
Please take any empties back with you.
Please be aware of other people using the park and path. The route will be on tarmacked paths all the way. It crosses the entrance to Jordanstown Park and so care should be taken in case any cars are trying to enter/ exit as you cross this small road. A marshal will be in place here to help control the traffic.

1 mile fun run route
The 1 mile route will be two laps of the Hazelbank Park. It is flat route on tarmacked paths. Marshals will guide runners all the way.

First Aid
There will be first-aiders along the route and at the finish line.

Collect your medal at the finish line. There will be refreshments at the bowling club for everyone. We will also hold a prize giving ceremony for winners.

This will be a timed event; there will be prizes (trophies and vouchers) for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female and also mini trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd boy and girl in the 1 mile run.
