Be very afraid…Lyme Regis gets taken over by witches, ghosts and zombies when the Lyme Slime Halloween Festival descends on the town at the end of October. The Spooky-extravaganza is getting even bigger this year with a week of spooky happenings around the town including Spine-tingling town trail, beastly baking, creepy crafts and of course culminating in the fiendishly LYME SLIME FUN RUN with four Halloween themed obstacles and challenges along the seafront for the whole family to join in – if you dare….


The Lyme Slime team are gearing up for a fun filled week with a programme packed full of entertaining events over our Ocotber half term festival week.

More events will be added and confirmed so check back for the full weeks programme of events.

Run, walk or fly on your broomstick..

NEW OBSTACLES FOR 2017 – Radioactive Liquid Station & Sticky Spider Web Crawl

Are you brave enough to tackle the Lyme Slime? Run, crawl and balance on the four ghoulish Halloween obstacles along the route designed to challenge, excite and have fun. Crawl bravely under the ‘Sticky Spiders Web’, test your balance at the ‘Radioactive Liquid Station, touch gross items on the ‘Trick or Treat’ table, plus other secret scary challenges.

Come in your favourite Halloween fancy dress or paint your face ghoulishly and enjoy the spooky 1K (for 3 – 5 years) or 2K (age 6 and over) even spookier obstacle course with your family or friends. Adults are welcome to take part and many of our participants make it a thoroughly memorable experience by taking part as a family. Don’t forget to also join in the spooky mass warm up and fancy dress contest.


1 Km – £5 Per Child. Adults run free (but no refreshment is included) Children in the 1Km must be accompanied by an adult.
2 Km – £5 Per Child and £5 Per Adult (we recommend children aged under 8 are accompanied, but this isn’t compulsory)

Each entry fee includes participation in the Halloween obstacle course, race number, a refreshment medal, drink and goodies.

Places are limited and this was extremely popular last year so do book early. Prices will increase in October or when the first 50 places are purchased.


Word Forest Organisation

We are raising money for local charity The Word Forest Organisation who plant urgently needed trees in Kenya and also build school classrooms for the impoverished communities who tend to these forests of trees.  This helps lift them out of poverty and stops children from turning to child prostitution.
