Halloween Freedom Run 31st October 2013

Halloween Freedom Run at Pennington Flash

Thursday 31st October 2013 starting at 20:00.

We are having a Halloween themed parkrun Freedom Run this coming Thursday. The event will start at 20:00 from the normal starting place and we will be running the full parkrun course.

This event will be held as a group Freedom Run; Freedom Runs allow you to run a parkrun course and register it online on the parkrun website. They do not count towards points or t-shirts as they are self-certified, but they do attached to your parkrun profile.

How it works: to register a freedom run you need access to any email or newsletter from parkrun, each of these contain a link to your profile and if you click on this link it takes you to your online profile.

There you will find a link called ‘Freedom’ and by clicking on this you can enter the details of your Freedom Run.

On Thursday we will start the run and time you using a sports watch, you will be given a finishing token and once everyone has finished the run we will be giving you your actual time so that you can then register it afterwards. We cannot register freedom runs for you!

Following the run we are planning on having a car-boot picnic in the main car-park. Please feel free to bring snacks and drinks with you for yourself and if possible to share. We will not have access to the cabin for this event. Please note that there will be no charge for the car-park after dusk :- )

As always fancy dress is encouraged for this special event.
