Happy Halloween to all parkrunners this weekend!

Halloween group shot

It’s the last weekend in October and that can only mean one thing… it’s time for Halloween parkrun! Halloween is a fantastic excuse to dress up and have fun, and in previous years parkrunners have turned up to their weekly 5k in all manner of outfits and make-up! We’re looking forward to seeing plenty of ghoulish kit this weekend and to celebrating the Halloween theme in style – just remember that whatever your fancy dress, it’s always important to wear the correct running shoes. We don’t want any frightful injuries, after all!


If you are looking for a good pair of running shoes, autumn is the perfect time to treat yourself to a new pair and give yourself an extra boost to get out there in the cooler, darker days. Here at Intersport we have a superb range of running shoes from all your favourite brands, and we’re always on hand with plenty of running advice. Simply pop into your local store (find your nearest store here) and we’ll be happy to help with tips about running through to gait analysis and finding your perfect shoe.
