Racing Attire, Costumes, and Etiquette

Halloween is a time to express yourself, and we think running in costume is more fun. So, we encourage you to wear silly, super, spooky, sophisticated, satirical, stealthy, and even simple costumes. This is a family event, so please keep your costumes in good taste. Costumes are not required, but you might just get more candy! Plus our costume contest will award those costumes with the most creativity.

Judging takes place at 1:30 p.m. at the start/finish line before the start of the race.

Timed Races Offered

  • 1-Mile, 5K, 10K & Beast 3-Race Challenge to Run all 3 Races (10.3 Miles)
