Fancy frightening runners? Or maybe you want to see how fast you can run away? The Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre needs you. 

This year the shopping centre, in partnership with the Ealing Half Marathon, will be hosting a 2k run sure to make participants sweat and scream. The 2k requires zombies to stagger after fun runners giving them the thrill of a lifetime and motivating them to get to the finish line –fast.

All proceeds from the run will go to The Log Cabin, a local Ealing charity that provides a safe play area for children with disabilities and additional needs. The event is set to take place on Thursday 30 October with race start times at 7.00pm, 7.20pm and 7.40pm.

This Hallows eve starts by preparing runners with a taste of Virgin Active’s zombie Zumba class, Thriller-style, helping them limber up and avoid becoming a tasty treat later. Runners will then wind their way through the shopping centre’s basement avoiding frights and thrills at every corner. After the race, all participants are invited to monster mash into the night with West Side radio who will be providing music sure to rattle bones and bodies.

If participants ache for more, the next day they can visit the shopping centre where the safe trick or treating initiative for the children of Ealing will take place. The free of charge activity invites children to get dressed up to enjoy a day of face painting, spooky entertainment and of course- treats.

Lucy Thomas, Marketing Manager for the Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre says “We can’t wait to see the Centre full of Halloween fancy dress and children enjoying themselves in a safe environment again.” Lucy says the shops are equally as keen, “Shops have jumped at the chance to be involved and we are encouraging them to dress up and get into the ‘spirit’ of things too.”

The safe trick or treating initiative takes place Friday 31 October from 12.00pm to 6.00pm.
