This year’s Enniskillen Spooktacular organised by Enniskillen Running Club promises to be the biggest and best if early indications are anything to go by. 
Over 400 entrants have already entered online and the Running Club is hopeful of topping last year’s record entry of almost 1,000 runners. 
Indeed, the Enniskillen Running club is giving free entry to the 500th entrant, 600th entrant, 700th entrant etc., so why not give it a go. 
At the elite end of things, the new route has helped attract what looks like a stellar cast. 
Last year’s winner Conan McCaughey from Enniskillen is in a rich vein of form and has broken 15mins for 5K this year and he will relish the challenge from a quality field that will include three times winner Mark Hoy, returning after missing out due to injury last year, while current Irish 5,000m title holder- Monaghan man, Conor Duffy from Glaslough will be hard to stop!
Scott Rankin from Foyle Valley is another who has produced a string of impressive performance on the road finishing runner up in both Belfast and Waterside half marathons recently and he is sure to figure prominently as will Ballinamallard man  Stephen Prentice who should also be challenging at the head of the field
In the elite women’s section this looks to be a head to head duel between former winner Patricia O’Hagan from Enniskillen and world master Denise Toner from Lisnaskea.
