The Halloween Walk is a spooky sponsored night-time walk around London - with the choice of walking from 10km to a full marathon.

Simply choose your distance, gather your bravest guys and ghouls to make up a team - or go it alone if you dare and meet up with other chilling challengers. Dress to distress, and our creepy dungeon keepers at the Oval start and finish will meet, greet and shock.

Once you escape the starting line there are ghostly looped routes, with zombie rest stops, and if you manage to get back in one piece there's:

  • a macabre medal
  • a glass of the Devil's fizz
  • some horrific hot food and drink
  • and a souvenir bobble hat to ward off the spirits as you head off.

Start times

There are three Halloween Challenges for you to pick from, with start times to suit those who to get home in the evening (or down the pub) and late starts for the ‘Night Owls’ with a midnight finish.
