Lots of little boys tugged on their dad’s arms saying ‘look – he’s got a knife through his head’. The dad’s played along shrieking ‘he needs an ambulance’ but nodge reassured them pulling the knife off his head whilst telling them ‘it’s ok – it’s not real look’!
Disappointingly, the finish line wasn’t actually the finish line. We sprinted through the finish arch giving it out all, only to be told the finish was another 200m away.
At the finish we were given two options – go right for trick or left for treat. Keita chose trick and had to plunge her arm into slime to retrieve a gold coin to get her medal. Where as nodge chose treat and received a bag of sweets.
The start was at Robin Hood Gate but the nearest car park was at Broomfield.
You need to buy a voucher to park but there is a sports ground opposite Robin Hood Gate which provided parking.
The fancy dress made the day – the pumpkin zone and pirate zone were a bit disappointing but well done to the people trying to spook us.
If you go for trick, your little Ines won’t get a goody bag of seeets. Hopefully next year the organisers can sort this so all kids get something?
Bring 20p for the park toilets.
Catering on site was fab but bring something to sit on after the race.
