Spooky sprint is a race arranged by Parkinson’s UKthere was both a 5k and a 10k you could race. We both ran the 10k and decided to run together. The race was supposed to be a night time race around the Hop Farm Kent. Due to bad weather the week before caused the start time too be brought forward to 3pm. When we found out the race time had been brought forward we were disappointed. Both of us were looking forward to racing off road at night. In the end I have to say I did enjoy the spooky sprint.
The spooky sprint is two 5k laps of the Hop Farm in Kent the race was well marshalled. All the marshals encouraging every runner. The 10k runners started first followed by the 5k runners. My running partner let me know in the first mile I was making her run too fast so we slowed down. Throughout the run she was 5th lady. From 7km the race began and my running partner came into 4th Place with about 1.5km till the finish. Every time we sped up so did the lady in 3rd Lady but we kept on fighting and finished the spooky sprint as 4th lady and 19th overall.
The spooky sprint was very well organised the only downfall was the start time change. but if next year the race will start in the dark I will defiantly aim to take part again.
