Organised by Three Counties Running Club, the event had a 1K run for children and a 5K for adults.

Adventurous participants donned creepy masks, face paint, devil horns and capes to trape through the park and raise money.

The club say that they are on their way to hitting their target of £12,000 for lights to be installed in the park for night time runs.

Gary Bligh, coach and organiser, said: “It was our first event and we work in conjunction with Wisbech Park to encourage people to get out there and get fit.

“We do an Easter and Santa run but this was the first Halloween run and it’s something we would definitely plan to do again.

“We were really impressed with how people dressed up and got in the spirit – it was great.”

The run took place on Saturday morning.

It is also hoped that by having lights installed in the park it will curb any anti-social behaviour in the area.
