On your marks for spooky run

THERE’LL be ghosts and ghouls and witches in the woods as a Hallowe’en Fun Run returns.

The Bothal Woods 5km event makes a return next week in aid of Northumberland Wildlife Trust.

Sponsored by Greggs, the run follows an off-road, often muddy course through the woods from Bothal Bridge to Morpeth.

Hampers will be awarded for the best male and female Hallowe’en fancy dress costumes.

Entry is £5 or free for those raising a minimum of £15 in sponsorship.

Proceeds will be used by the wildlife charity to protect local habitats and educate and inspire people to care for their environment.

The run takes place on Sunday, October 30, starting at 10.30am.

Entry forms are available online at www.nwt.org.uk or from Northumberland Wildlife Trust on 0191 2846884.
