Halloween 5k Night Trail a Fantastic Turnout

What a fantastic turnout at the Halloween 5k Night Trail seeing over 200 runners on the start line. An amazing show of fancy dress costumes lined the White water course as they headed off into the unknown woodland. Blood sucking, flesh eating Zombies were dying to greet them as they came deep into their territory. Screams could be heard as they headed straight into a cloud of smoke being chased down by a man wielding a chainsaw!

Thankfully no one was caught to fulfil the Zombies blood curdling thirst managing to get back to the Beefeater Talpore in one piece!

We hope you enjoyed the event and welcome any comments/feedback.

Gary Read - Halloween Costume Winner 2015The Winner of the best costume selected by the Manager of the Talpore was Gary Read of Quakers Running club. It was a very difficult choice with so many amazing outfits.

Special Thanks:
We want to say a special thank you to all the Marshal’s, the ‘Zombies’ and the chainsaw man Doug Howes who did a fantastic job in scaring you all to death, Kay Stokes and Nicola Howes who did a terrific job in registration (it was manic)! The First Aid Team and the Photographer Matthew Wright. Massive thank you to the Talpore for fantastic facilities (hope you took advantage of the bar). The Candy Cones were supplied by Pop Larkins in Billingham, thank you Claire. Big thank you to Herbalife for bringing across the CR7 hope you took full advantage of the pre race drink. They are definitely worth a try, will be popping one in my drinks bottle for my next run!
