Start Time: 8:00 a.m.

 

5K Course

Bring your friends and try to survive the Haunted 5k, a terrifying trot past slaughterhouses and abandoned rail-roads. We always recommend that you bring friends that you can outrun just in case. Dress your best to win prizes for being the most horrifying creature in this creepy 5K.
