The popular ‘Lyme Slime 2km’ Obstacle Fun Run is returning this October half term – with a promise of even more spooky surprises.

The race, on Sunday October 29, is the final activity in the Lyme Slime Halloween Festival and bookings are now being taken.

There is a 1km run, for three to five-year-olds the 2km race open to everyone else.

Extra Halloween obstacles and challenges have been added along the seafront route including a ‘Sticky Spider Web,’ ‘Radioactive Liquid Station’ and an exciting new ‘Trick or Treat Challenge,’ from Baboo Gelato.

Participants of all ages and abilities are welcome to run, jog or walk the course on their own, or with family and friends.

Event Director, Sally Raynes, from Wacky Nation, said: “We had a fantastic response last year – it’s the perfect opportunity for families to experience running together and having fun without any scary nightmares.”

Runners and spectators are invited to also visit the Spooky Fun Zone with lots of Halloween children’s games and competitions in the Marine Parade Shelters between 10am and 1pm.

Fun run participants need to register in advance at www.wackynation.com/lymeslime The cost is £5. All entrants signing up before race day will receive their own race number, race day treats, a single scoop ice cream voucher from Baboo Gelato and a chocolate medal.

Money raised goes to the World Forest Organisation. Its CEO, Tracey West said “We’re incredibly excited to be involved in this fun event and every penny raised will make a huge difference to our communities over in Kenya. Thanks to the Wacky Nation team for pulling a whole week of family friendly Halloween events together for Lyme Regis!”
