Halloween 5K at Oak Grove Parkrun

We are hosting a Halloween parkrun where we are encouraging runners to attend dressed up in their favorite costume, although of course this is not obligatory. Do bear in mind that any costumes worn must be safe for runners and for other park users and that parkrun is always a family friendly event. Besides the Halloween theme and the additional attendees, the 5k run will be a parkrun event like any other.

Registration and participation in parkrun is always FREE!
