HUNTINGDON'S nightlife looks set to get strangely busy next month when hundreds of women are expected to walk, jog and run through the streets.
The town will be hosting Sue Ryder Care's first women-only sponsored Huntingdon Midnight Walk - a 10,000m charity challenge.
The event, which is being supported by The Hunts Post, will take place on Saturday, July 11, with women gathering at LA Fitness ready for the run which starts at midnight.
The course will head into the town centre before looping back to finish at LA Fitness where the runners are being promised a party-like atmosphere, breakfast and, of course, a medal.
