Event Details

Hell On The Humber is an endurance event series like no other, and Ellie On The Humber, Helloween Madness - HOTH Reloaded, is the tough and quite mischievous little sister of the series that packs an unexpectedly hard punch.


Helloween sees competitors taking on the tough and demanding Hell On The Humber route on the World famous Humber Bridge for six hours, as they try to complete as many 4 mile laps as possible in that time.  There's no upper mileage limit, though there are course records of over 40 miles just begging to be smashed, and all we ask is that participants complete a minimum of one lap every 3 hours.  How hard could it be???


To add to the fun, the competitors and event crew like to dress up in fancy dress for the event, with this year's event theme being Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of The Dead as it's known in English, a more traditional Mexican and Central American approach to the Halloween season; which celebrates the lives of those who have passed, instead of the more westernised approach of trying to scare everyone witless (something not needed at HOTH as most of us are already witless), though the costumes and make up can be a little... Edgy.  We also have truly cruel prizes of a free race next year being offered for the best male and female costumes.  The event crew even lay on pizza and a beer at the end of the race.  Sounds great, right?


You don't have to be an Ultra runner to take part in the HOTH Event Series, though many experienced long distance runners from across the country do return to the event year after year and rack up some impressive distances. You don't even have to be a runner to take part, walkers are always welcome.  All we ask is that you complete the minimum number of laps, you're 16 or over (under 18's require parental consent), and that you be part of the event with the right attitude, that being one of enjoyment, inclusion, and support. Egos aren't welcome.  Every finisher receives the coveted finisher's shirt, a medal, and has their mileage added to the HOTH Leaderboard.  They also get beer and pizza at the finish, did we mention that? 


This year we're also inviting the kids... That's right, the children aged 12 and under belonging to Helloween participants and crew are invited to run in the Helloween Tower Run which will take place at approximately 16:00, and has a mandatory fancy dress code...


The Helloween Madness event is run in memory of our close friend Ellie Penrose, who ran at the event in 2013 and 2014, both times finishing with 28 miles under her belt.  Ellie was the youngest ever HOTH competitor, finishing her first Helloween race aged just 16, and when she wasn't racing she could often be found helping out behind the scenes, working hard to make sure the runners had everything they needed to enjoy their race.  Sadly Ellie died unexpectedly of Meningitis in August 2015 at the age of 18, and as a mark of respect and rememberence to one of our very close family of friends, the Helloween event has been renamed Ellie On The Humber.  Ellie loved being part of the event, and now she will be forever.  A number of places each year will be donated to the Ellie Penrose Fund, a charity which has been set up by Ellie's family to raise money to help people under 21 get into, or continue with their sport.  We don't charge for the Ellie entries, we just ask that those running for the fund raise as much as they can in sponsorship and a minimum of the cost of an entry.  Interested fund raisers should email for more information.  Please note that all Ellie entries are limited.
