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!
