We don’t know what it is about nuns, but they have provided some very memorable examples of Halloween fancy dress costumes over the years.
However, if you want an excuse to dust yours off again or even try a nun’s habit for the first time, then you may have the perfect opportunity.
The producers of Sister Act the Musical have announced that there will be another Nun Run in London this May, following on from last year’s debut event.
Set to take place on May 2nd – Bank Holiday weekend – it’ll involve hundreds of nuns pounding the streets of the capital to raise money for Barnardo’s.
Last year’s was hilarious – trust us, we watched them crossing Tower Bridge – and we reckon the 2010 run will be just as good, if not better.
If you want to take part, the run starts on Potters Fields at 10am sharp.
However, if you can’t make it to London or simply want to borrow this excellent idea, why not host your own sponsored Nun Run for the same weekend?
There are some cracking nun costumes, whether you want traditional, sexy or Halloween styles, so you could order some for you and your mates and raise some cash.
Who knows – if your Nun Run is a success, it could even become a habit. Ahem, sorry…
