Halloween Trick or Trot 5K & Monster Fun Run

Sunday, October 29, 2017


Enjoy a “spooktacular” morning on Sunday, October 29, 2017 with some of Needham’s finest ghosts, ghouls, witches, superheroes, princesses and just about anything in between!!! Costumes are optional, but strongly encouraged!

Fun Run:

The Fun Run will start at 8:30 a.m. and is meant for children ages 12 years and under. All registered Fun Run participants will receive a prize.

5K Run/Walk:

The 5K is a chip-timed event and will start at 9 a.m. It is a run/walk that is meant for people of all ages and abilities. We welcome anyone to join us. There will be prizes for overall top 3 female and top 3 male runners. There will be medals for top 6 runners (3 female, 3 male) in each of the following age groups (<13, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+). Finally, we will also be giving out awards for best costumes – so be sure to be creative!

Never run a 5K before, but want to give it a try? The Needham Running Club has generously partnered with us to develop a 6-week Couch-to-5K (C25K) program for those that want to give this a try! No matter what way you choose to approach this 5K, just remember to have fun!
