Fun-runners take on Halloween challenge

Pumpkins, witches, skeletons and zombies descended on a city park for the St Richard’s Hospice Halloween Run – raising more than £5,000.

More than 200 fun-runners braved the cold on Sunday, October 28 to take on the course at Worcester Woods Country Park.

Friends, families and colleagues dressed up in their most terrifying fancy dress – with prizes awarded to the best dressed.

Kelly Johns, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We had a fantastic time at our Halloween Run and would like to thank everyone for taking part.

“There were so many gruesomely good outfits on show and it was great to see everyone getting into the spooky spirit of the day.

“Thanks to everyone who took part and raised money, a brilliant amount can be donated to support our hospice care – both here at our base in Worcester and in communities across the county.”

Participants took on either a 2.5K or 5K route around the country park, tackling trick or treat stations along the way.

This was the second Halloween Run held by the hospice, following the first in 2016.
