North Carolina Halloween Half Marathon & 5K
Sunday, Oct. 30, 2016
The concept for the Halloween Half Marathon was born in early 2009 in Miami Beach. We were looking for a unique “hook” to add into a traditional running event. We figured there were plenty of running events out there so we wanted to create a unique experience for the runners.
We thought of Halloween! Even as adults, when the calendar turns the page to October, Halloween comes to mind. With much success of this event in Miami Beach we decided to bring this amazing event to the great state of North Carolina.
The artwork for the event, the medals, and the shirt will incorporate a Halloween character chosen by you the runner. To date we have used bats, vampires, skeletons, zombies, and werewolves.
The event will offer games for all ages, health screenings, fitness speakers, costume awards, pumpkin carving competition, sponsor giveaways, free kids race and will end with the Halloween Half Marathon & 5K starting at 7:30am.
