Utah’s favorite party run! Come R.I.P. (Run, Indulge, Party) with us at the Haunted Half this October. Dress up in your best non-chafing costume and get ready to run for your lives…and treats of course. With the option to run in the half marathon, 5K, or Halloween Half Mile this cursed course is great for all abilities! The party begins at the Expo, continues at the Start, goes off the charts along the beautiful downhill course, and just when you think you can’t take any more…the Fear Factory Finish is there to give you that much needed ego boost and reward you with a festival full of music, food, games, contests, and spooky fun things!

Assisted Athletes

Runtastic encourages people of all abilities to participate in Runtastic Events. For this reason, Runtastic has created an “Assisted Athlete” Category with the following policy:

  1. An “Assisted Athlete” is one who cannot participate in a Runtastic Event by themselves and needs the help of another known as a “Pusher”.
  2. Category and Prizes:
    1. Assisted Athlete and Pusher will both receive Bib Numbers, Packets and Shirts.  Upon Finishing each will receive a Finisher Medal.
    2. Assisted Athlete and the Pusher will be placed together into an “Assisted Athlete” category.
    3. Assisted Athlete and Pusher are together eligible for awards within an Assisted Athlete category.
    4. The award is a single shared award presented to the Assisted Athlete and then to the Pusher if the Assisted Athlete is not physically capable of accepting the award.
    5. Assisted Athlete and Pusher are not eligible for Overall Awards or age group awards.
    6. Following USATF rules and regulations, Pusher is considered “aided” as they are not running the event completely free of any devices and therefore are participating and not competing in the Runtastic Event and therefore are not eligible for overall or individual age group awards.
  1. Pricing:
    1. The Pusher is required to pay current Full Price for entry into a Runtastic Event.
    2. The Assisted Athlete is required to pay current Half Price for entry into a Runtastic Event.
  2. Signup:
    1. Register the Pusher.
    2. Email us at info@runtasticevents.com to get the half off code for the Assisted Athlete.  
    3. Include in the email the following:
      1. Full name of the Assisted Athlete.
      2. Full name of the Pusher.  
      3. Pusher registration confirmation number
  3. Transportation:
    1. Pusher may ride the bus to the starting line.
    2. Buses are not equipped to handle the different and varied needs of the Assisted Athlete and their gear and therefore if there is busing for the event the Assisted Athlete must provide their own transportation to the Starting Line of the event.
    3. A Vehicle Pass is required for transit to and parking at the Starting line.  Vehicle Pass must be obtained at the Information Booth at the Packet Pickup/Expo.
