Runner’s World Halloween Run in Madrid
The ‘HALLOWEEN RUN by Runner’s World 2014’ [link in Spanish] is a blend of fun and sport in a terrifying ambience! The participants have to run 6.66 km through the Halloween night in the Hipódromo de la Zarzuela in Madrid. Across grass and concrete, some sections are well lit, others rather less so… it’s best you don’t get separated from your group at any point, because the Halloween spirits are following your every footstep!
