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!
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.
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!
