Parents/adults can accompany their child free of charge, no entry necessary, obviously no medal or flashing baton given. However if you want the medal buy an entry.
Glow in the Dark medal and a flashing foam baton thingy for every entry.
There are also adults 5k & 10k night trail races.
Our Dark Halloween kids fun run is a brand new addition to our Jolly Running Halloween event and is a fun and healthy alternative to taking your children Trick or Treating.
The 1 mile fun run is taking place in the beautiful grounds of Cockington Court.
The location is stunning, At the heart of Cockington Village lies Cockington Court, an historic manor house with roots in medieval times, surrounded by 460 acres of pretty country park. Perfect for a run on Halloween evening!!
Cockington Court also has over twenty craft studios, The Seven Dials cafe, walled art garden, tudor rose garden, contemporary art gallery and a popular children’s play area.
The grounds are beautifully managed by the Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust charity and the court is run under the Torbay Development Agency.
We have collaborated with the TDA to compliment their Day of the Dead Halloween festival activities starting from 21st October to 3rd November.
The fun run route will be on some of the same course that the adults do on the 10k event. It will take you on the paths and grass trails of the arboretum.
The fun run takes place at dusk and due to the fading light torches are mandatory, it also adds to the Halloween fun. Children and adults fancy dress is very welcome and fully encouraged, you know us, any excuse to dress up, don a costume or look silly. And who doesn't dress up on Halloween??
Minimum Age is 3 years ( accompanied )
This is a fun run rather than a race therefore there will not be any timings or published results. It's just for a bit of fun!
All paid entrants will wear a race number. Accompanying adults who have not entered will not need a race number.
All entries will get a bespoke Glow in the Dark Halloween Fun Run medal and a flashing foam glow baton thingy.
Parents and guardians can run free of charge with their children without needing to enter obviously you won’t get a medal and flashing baton though.
Adults can enter with their children too.
Please enter your Childs details on the system and remember to add your contact details as their Emergency contact.
We have collaborated with the Torbay Development agency and the Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust in making this event family friendly, we have 3 designated pay and display car parks in very close proximity to the Race HQ which will have extended opening hours for the event and there are toilets and a cafe at race Hq too. The Drum Inn pub is also a short walk across the green.
The Seven Dials Cafe at Cockington Court cafe is very kindly staying open to serve you food and drink so you can make an evening of it and feed your hungry little runners afterwards.
