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!

Key West is the perfect location for a Halloween themed running event! We can’t think of a better marriage than Key West & Halloween! We’ve had our eye set on this location for a while as an ideal spot for a costume themed event. The Key West Halloween Half Marathon & 5K offers a scenic running tour of the island as well as an ideal destination for a getaway weekend. Participants can feel good about any partying they do knowing that they have bundled in a run with their fun!

We encourage our participants to run in a costume of their choice! While this is not mandatory, judging from the smiling faces of costumed runners at our other Halloween events, people seem to have more fun getting into the spirit of Halloween! We are proud to add a new destination to our Halloween Half Marathon Series – Key West, Florida! Our goal is to provide all of our participants with an experience to remember! Runners and Walkers of all ability are welcomed at this event. The goal is simply to finish, get that Halloween medal around your neck, and have a good time! All finishers in both the Half Marathon & 5K will receive a medal!

Costumes are optional, but a fun & memorable time is mandatory!
