Halloween Challenge Samphire Hoe
Halloween by the sea! We'll start our Halloween Challenge at Samphire Hoe in the daylight, then watch the sun go down and the ghosts and ghouls come out as the night comes in. Did we ever mention all the shipwrecks along the English Channel? Fancy dress is very much encouraged and we'll have some glow in the dark things to illuminate runners once the lights go out, not to mention our lovely Halloween Medal!
Samphire Hoe is nature reserve created from 4.9 million cubic metres of chalk marl from the Channel Tunnel excavations. This has been left to mature in to a rolling nature reserve with an abundance of wildlife, and for us runners, some lovely trails and a long wide dead flat sea wall to enclose it all. Complete as many 3.75 mile loops as you can in 6 hours.
