Worksop Halloween Half Marathon & Fun Run
Established in 1982, The Worksop Halloween Half Marathon (also known as ‘the scenic one’) takes place on the last Sunday in October every year. The course runs largely through Clumber Park, which provides beautiful scenery and is perfect for spectators to support their family and friends along the route. This is a hugely popular event. Bring the children along to the 3k fun run, and don't forget the spooky halloween theme so dress accordingly.

Tough, incredibly scenic and a great vibe!
Number pickup was smooth and easy and after the race, getting my medal, water and banana wa easy too, and I was delighted to get a long-sleeved t shirt! Very unusual. T shirt sizing was also pleasantly generous. Plenty of runners in fancy dress made this great fun and there were plenty of us at the back too, all very supportive and encouraging of each other, which always makes a race special. Clumber Park in autumn is beautiful and we were so lucky with the weather, with the exception of that one flood! The medal was fun without being naff, I loved the Halloween theme, and the shirt was great too. We managed to park close to the race village, the toilets had a big queue but were clean and plentiful, and the café inside selling very sweet treats was great for family and supporters. A great value for money run with a down to Earth and fun feel, not taking itself too seriously, but with sufficient professionalism that you got a high-quality shirt and medal.
To get five stars, I would like to see them solve the matting issue, or else ensure the matting is HIGHLY signposted and marshalled much better, with clear warnings to runners. A huge thank you to all volunteers on the day for making this a great event!
