The concept for our Halloween running events were born in early 2009. 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. The light bulb in our heads lit up once the October timeframe came into play…. Halloween! Even as adults, when the calendar turns the page to October, Halloween comes to mind. The marriage of Halloween, costume themes, and a running event quickly came together! From the outset we decided that each year would feature a different traditional Halloween character. The artwork for the event, the medals, and the shirt would incorporate the Halloween character. To date we have used bats, vampires, skeletons, zombies, and werewolves. We are starting to run out of traditional Halloween characters!
