Established in 1982, The Worksop Halloween Half Marathon (also known as ‘the scenic one’) takes place on the last Sunday in October every year, writes Terry Bewes.

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 which is soon sold out.

Leaving the Mighty Green behind, marathon veteran Jo Earlam arrived at the start suitably dress with her niece Jo Kidd who was running this distance for the first time.

Both thoroughly enjoyed themselves finishing together in 2:15:00 a very good time for a first timer.
