Calling all plodders, hardened club runners and all mere mortals inbetween!

Join us for a spook-tacular 10k fun-run around Croxteth Country Park
...If you dare!

until start


We are pool runnings! We're dedicated to organising new and interesting ways to run around various bits of Liverpool.

Our events are organised by runners, for runners. Our events are fun and guaranteed to entertain. We work with a number of running clubs to provide races that runners want in varied locations.

There are many places where you can turn up and run a 5k or 10k but who else do you know that sends you off around the picturesque setting of Croxteth Country Park then sends the Grim Reaper after you!

Please, if you like our event, take a minute to rate us over at Runner's World. Your feedback helps us make the event even better.
