Run for your LIFE!

Get out your Halloween costumes and be prepared to be scared out of your wits. If the running doesn’t increase your heart rate, being chased by monsters, zombies and psycho freaks will!

We will make you earn your post-event party by running or walking 5k or 10k along the beautiful Columbia River. Festive food and drink to follow the race!

Special Instructions

This race is a fun, costume-themed run/walk. Although titled 'Scary Run' your costume doesn't need to be scary. Be creative and dress in any costume you like as long as you can comfortably and safely run and walk. Feel free to get together with friends and come up with a fun costume theme.

The 'Scary' component will surface while you are running along the course and should guarantee some solid personal bests!


Kid's Events

Most kids will enjoy the 3 mile run/walk and we are offering discounted rates for the youngsters. But again, please use your best judgement regarding their ability to manage the scary costumes. We will place the scarier costumes on the latter part of the course so less of the little kids will get too frightened.


Post-Race Festivities:

• Festive Food & Drink
• Prizes for most Festive and/or Scariest Costumes
