Community Races Coming This Fall!

Think Outside the Box For Your Next Race with These Spooky Races

When’s the last time you ran a race just for fun? With no worrying about PRs or passing the person in front of you? If it’s been a while, you might need to slow down and enjoy the scenery. And there’s no better time to do that than during fall races.

Whether you’re a fan of costumes or you just want to break out of the running rut you’re in, you can’t go wrong with a spooky run. They offer you a chance to forget that you’re putting your body through a hard workout. Most runners are completely in favor of anything that makes a run seem more enjoyable.

While some of these spooky events offer real thrills, others will have you laughing more than screaming as you see some of the get-ups people are running in. You can pretend you’re starring in your very own zombie movie or you can check out the scarecrows passing by you as you head to the finish line to collect a cool medal that will be the envy of all your running buddies.

These kinds of runs are great for adults who want an experience they’ll always remember, but many of them are fun for the whole family as well. Kids will forget they’re getting exercise as they check out the costumes around them and race to the finish for after-run refreshments.

If you’re stumped when it comes to finding a haunted run near you, check out some of our suggestions. No matter what your terror tolerance is, you’ll be able to find a run that’s the perfect blend of thrills and fun. These range from seriously spooky to downright hilarious. Either way, you’ll get some great photo opportunities and the chance to do something unforgettable with your weekend.
