Event Details

A spooky themed Halloween race with a twist! Ideal for families with children of all ages, it's a race with no set route - you have to find your way around the course as fast as you can, using a special orienteering map of the parkland and woods to find a series of spooky checkpoints. Each checkpoint might be on paths, or hidden behind vegetation, ditches or streams. Expect a few surprises too - giant cobwebs, skeletons and the haunted wood! Be as competitive as you want - run, jog or just walk, there will be a 5k course for runners, plus shorter ones for families and juniors (1k to 3k). Just turn up and enter on the day, any time between 10:00 and 11:30. Courses close at 1pm. Entry fees are just £6 for adults and groups; £2 for solo juniors. Your entry fee includes a special waterproof map to keep as a souvenir plus hire of a timing chip to record your progress at each checkpoint. Organised by Thames Valley Orienteering Club and supported by Waddesdon and the National Trust. Parking at Waddesdon Manor, HP18 0JH. The race registration tents will be in the car park - just turn up (last entry is at 11:30am), lots of help will be available for newcomers.
