Saturday 26th October '24

Why not risk a hair-raising hike around some of the City’s scary streets and historic haunts? Choose your distance, gather your bravest guys & ghouls to take on a spooky challenge in support of Solving Kids Cancer UK! Dress to distress, and our creepy dungeon keepers at The Oval start & finish will meet, greet & shock. Once you escape, there are two ghostly looped routes with zombie rest stops, and if you manage to get back in one piece there’s a macabre medal, a glass of the Devil’s fizz, and some horrific hot food & drink!

Your Creepy Challenge...

There are 2 distance options: a wicked 10K Walk & a horrific 25K Halloween Hike. All start & finish at the Dungeon, deep in The Oval Cricket Ground, on Saturday 26th October.
