31st October 2020

This event is organised by Active Training World.


Merchant Taylors’ Halloween Trail

From 5.00pm


This Halloween, get dressed in fancy dress and bring the family to take part in a 2km Covid-secure, scary Halloween Trail around the Merchant Taylors Lake. We will have a route marked with glow-sticks and 5 ‘scary sweet stations’ positioned around the trail manned by marshals in fancy dress. Look out for the ghosts, ghouls, zombies and other scary characters that will be protecting the sweets.

The muddy trail follows the path around the lake, it will be dark so the trail will be marked with glowsticks. At least one member of each party must carry a torch….its up to you if you decide to use it or not but, beware of what may be lurking in the mud and dark! BE PREPARED TO BE SCARED!!
