About the event

Back for 2022–why not treat yourself to a hair-raising hike around some of the London’s scary streets and historic haunts?

First choose your distance - full or half marathon. Then gather your bravest guys and ghouls to make up a team. Or, you can go it alone if you dare and meet up with other chilling challengers.

Dress to distress and our creepy dungeon keepers at The Oval start and finish will meet, greet and shock. Once you escape, there’s ghostly looped routes, with zombie rest stops. If you manage to get back in one piece there’s a macabre medal and a glass of the devil’s fizz. There's also some horrific hot food and drink and a souvenir bobble hat to ward off the spirits as you head off.

This event is strictly walking only so no jogging or running is allowed.

Trekking across Iceland for mental health - Maria's story

"We knew that the challenge was going to be difficult. 58km covering volcanic rock, miles upon miles of thick snow, ice cold river crossings with steep ascents and descents that pack a punch on the knees. But we've supported each other through mental health problems; we can support each other through anything
