Trick or Treat Run
Spellbind us with your talents as you walk, jog or run 2km, 5km or 10km round a closed royal park course. You can run either by yourself or with the family or with a group of friends, with fancy dress encouraged. The beautiful venue of Richmond Park provides the perfect setting for a Halloween extravaganza (just don’t get spooked by the deer!) and with prizes for the best costumes, you’d be a devil not to enter.
Fun Runs and Kids Events in 2020
As the name suggests a fun run is a non competitive and in many cases are designed for children to take part in, though there are also plenty for adults to enjoy too. Because no one is keeping score, these races have a much more relaxed attitude and as such many will have a theme or element to them that makes them very unique compared to usual races.
You may see many fun races where people dress up in costume and run the entire race that way – it’s all part of what makes these runs fun! More recently Colour Runs such as the Wiggle Color Vibe have become very popular amongst first time runners as they offer short distances whilst keeping things relaxed and fun.
Training for a fun running can vary a lot depending on what elements the race has to it – as such you should find out all the info you can well in advance and then tailor your training to what you need to do on the day. As mentioned though many of these races are designed with kids in mine so you may just wish to go down to one and have a great family day out at an event such as the Big Fun Run
Kids Fun Run
These types of event are fantastic for children and alot of providers offer reduced entry prices for them too. Look out for ones that allow fancy dress, they will always appeal more to children if they can run as their favorite super hero or cartoon character!
Fun Runs for Charity
There are plenty of runs where you can also raise money for a charity, you can use our charity filter in the left search to find charities that support events. They will normally set you a fundraising amound and even give you sponsorship forms to help track any money raised.

TRICK OR TREAT FINISH
Runners will be faced with a decision when they reach the finish line – Trick or Treat? Once runners have finished their chosen distance of 2k, 5k or 10k they will have to pick. Go down the Trick finish for a spooky surprise, or to play it safe for a Treat. Which will you choose?
Richmond Park is famous for its stunning views and wandering deer, close to London but seemingly a different world from the bustling capital. There are few more picturesque and pleasant places in the country to run. It is incredibly rare for the park to close for an event of this nature, so we are privileged to have a fully closed road route in a spectacular setting.
As well as their trick or treat everybody who crosses the line will receive a special medal to commemorate the day.
