THE England Athletics club of the year is planning a Halloween run.

Prudhoe Plodders Running Club will be running around the town on the afternoon of October 31.

The run will see members in full Halloween costumes start at Eastwood Park, through West Wylam, Castlefields, along Castle Road and Front Street before ending back at Eastwood Park.

All members are donating money to Prudhoe Parkrun to take part after it announced it required funds for a storage container.

En-route members will be handing out sweets to any children out trick or treating.

"We have been looking, as a club, to get more involved with the community, with Covid, we haven't really been able to", said John Page, of the Movie Prop Warehouse. "Now that restrictions are being eased we thought Halloween would be the ideal opportunity to do something nice for the children of Prudhoe, who, like everyone, have had a rough year.

"We have quite a few members signed up already along with several junior athletes also running so we should have quite a parade going through Prudhoe!"
