And when the darkness fell, the runners began to line up in the starting area. The participants could easily guess that there was something creepy waiting for them in the darkness, especially the starting arch with the frightening inscription “WELCOME TO HELL” made it clear that there is nothing ”hallow” ahead. Only darkness, monsters and a bag full of sweets.

Throughout the route there were monsters even scarier than most of the participants waiting for the runners, and, of course, sweets. All the registered heroes, received some red bags from VideoSecurity besides their numbers, in which they gathered the candies and cookies from Dulcinella and Nefis, and also the sugar water from Letto and the juice from Naturalis.14615806_1194667750571526_801234381301473269_o
