Details

If you head down to Hammond’s Pond this October you will certainly be in for a big surprise!

Ghosts and goblins, witches and wizards will be descending on the pond for a ghoulish day of fundraising in aid of Jigsaw, Cumbria's Children's Hospice. But will you be brave enough to join them!?

The Pumpkin Plod is the perfect Halloween event for the whole family with two hair-raising routes to choose from.

- Spooky Saunter for the older kids (1 lap of the pond) - Trick or Treat Toddle for the little kids (1 lap of the play park)

Each route will be packed with lots of spooky surprises, but will your little monsters be brave enough to search for hidden treats amongst the cob webs and slime?

What are you waiting for? Carve up your pumpkin, throw on your spookiest Halloween costumes and plod along to Hammond’s Pond for a spooktacular fundraising event in aid of your local children’s hospice.

All finishers will receive a ghoulish medal on the day.
