Race overview

The first Cleethorpes Haunted Halloween Hobble was a spooktacular success.

Come and join in the spooky fun for the second night of ghostly goings on!

Last year…..On a breezy dark evening 400 Halloween hungry children and adults dressed up in all sorts of amazing costumes with bright torches so they could see the spooky goings on! Witches, ghosts and a whole array of fantastic costumes were trotting around the sea front in the resort, trying to anticipate where the next spooky surprise would come from.

Everyone came home safely and received a lovely Halloween medal which was well earned on the damp and eery night!
