The Challenge Yourself 5k event is held on a FUN yet challenging course that will take you along the ghostly trails of Watkins Mill Road. The Fun Run is a spooky mini trail for all ages. Parents are invited to push their little gremlins along the course in strollers (please no scooters or skateboards). Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

Immediately following the race, runners and spectators alike are invited to partake in a special “I Survived the Halloween Hustle” awards ceremony and festivities. This includes trick-or-treating at all vendor tables, a moon bounce, music, and much more. Stay tuned for more hair raising details about the race...IF YOU DARE!

The event will be held rain or shine, and entry fees are non-refundable.
