The family event over a 5k route is being organised by Renfrewshire Leisure around the ON-X Sports Centre, in Linwood and is an alternative to the annual Paisley 10k Road Race and Fun Run, which is not taking place this year.
While plans are already being made for the popular Decathlon-sponsored Paisley 10k and Fun Run to be held in 2022, the smaller-scale Monster Dash is an ideal way for fun runners to take part in an event this year.
The Monster Dash is being held at 12 noon on Sunday, October 31 and runners are being encouraged to come along in fancy dress since the event is being held on Halloween.
Everyone taking part will receive a goody bag and there will be spot prizes for the best-dressed runners in Halloween costumes.
The route will take fun runners on two laps of the scenic Linwood Moss and is a flat course with only a few gentle undulations.
Entrance fee is only £3 for adults and £2 for children. Go to www.renfrewshireleisure.com/monsterdash to register for the event.
Chair of Renfrewshire Leisure, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes said: “While unfortunately we’ve had to postpone this year’s big races – the Paisley 10k and Fun Run – we thought we would still give runners the chance to take part in a fun event, albeit on a smaller scale.
“This will be a good way to ease everyone back into running again and since it’s Halloween, we hope the runners will join in the spirit of what day it is and come along in fancy dress.
“We’ve already started planning for next year’s Paisley 10k and Fun Run, which I’m sure will be better than ever.”
