Race Schedule:

9 a.m. Kids Spooky Sprint - 3/4 Mile: The 10th edition of this super fun kids Halloween tradition needs no adjustment. Kids can debut their costumes on this easy course circling the pavilions to finish back at the stage. There'll be no tricks along this course, just goodies along the way, so make sure they sprint with a sack!

9:30 a.m. Monster Mash Dash - 5K: This event will give runners a cross country challenge around little 'ol Anson B. Nixon Park. Get ready to run on the paths, across the fields, dodging the frisbee golfers, over the streams and through the woods to the party at the finish line.

9:30 a.m. Monster Run/Walk - 2.5K Timed (New!): Take in the beautiful autumn scenery as you navigate the 5k course. This fun-raising walk will get you prepared to cover the neighborhood miles on Halloween night! This walk will follow the same course as the 5K Dash.

We did the mash, and it's a graveyard smash!

In 2016, we had over 300 participants running through the stunning fall foliage of Anson B. Nixon Park. The event was sponsored by Cari Orthodontics and was a huge success! Bancroft Elementary School won the School Participation Award for the 4th year in a row and everyone looked awesome in their costumes.
