Spooky Sprint - Waddesdon Manor

We dare you to run, jog or walk in the Spooky Sprint - a spine-tingling race with a difference! A run in the dark with only a head torch to light your way, it will test your nerve as well as your fitness.

It's so good, it's scary.

Join our run on the dark side

Choose your distance and join us when the sun goes down at Waddesdon Manor near Aylesbury. Remember to bring your little monsters along for our 500m family fun run!

Your support at this charity run will help us find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

Weather this weekend

High winds and light rain are forecast in the area this weekend. We've been assured by the venue that the event will still go ahead. Do wear suitable warm clothing - layers are best - and remember that you'll cool down after your run, so bringing a spare jumper or jacket is a good idea.
