Spooky Sprint

29 Oct 2021

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Spooky Sprint is a Halloween themed after dark event for kids and adults. There are two new events for 2021 taking advantage of the 50m open air pool at our brilliant new venue, Guildford Lido. This gives you 4 events to choose from, catering for those as young as 3yrs.

The Lido offers free parking, changing rooms, showers and toilets. Fancy dress is strongly encouraged but please no toilet paper mummies, we don't want to be picking up bits of toilet paper all over the place again!   

First addition is a sprint version of swimrun, sprint or supersprint options with multiple short swims and multiple short runs.  

The second new event is simply swimming, no running. Enjoy our spooky decorations, including underwater lights, spooky music, spooky snacks in a dedicated swimming only lane. 

Our original Spooky Sprint events are making their return. Choose the 3 mile run/ jog for those aged 5 years plus...

... or the 1 mile walk/ jog for anyone 3 years and over.

Please note children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 16 at all times, we strongly suggest any children under 5 years are suppervised by 1 adult to 1 child.

For the spooky swimrun and the spooky swim, wetsuits are recommened as currently the pool will not be heated during the winter season which starts on 27th September. Water temperature is likely to be 17-19*c but could be lower if October sees colder than average air temperatures.
