The SOMETHING FOR EVERY BODY & EVERYBODY races! This year’s event will support our armed forces and anything in a uniform.
It’s a kick off for a FIT FALL. We are combining the traditional Halloween/Harvest theme (so if that’s your gig, costume it up, join in games, costume contests, and super fun selfies and awards. But, NEW this year, we are adding an ARMY/BOOT Camp element to make it even more fun. A corner of the race expo/encampment will be a BOOT CAMP. A chance to play army at boot camp skill stations before or after the run. A chance to get army face painted. And an additional awards added for not only best Halloween costumes, but best top three themed in a uniform! And a awards for teams that run in platoon formation. Don’t have a platoon leader , but want to run with one? We will assign you in platoon at a slow , military pace!
Here’s how unique this event will be. The finisher medal is in the form of a huge army dog tag…the ribbon and medal are two sided. Flip it, and you are celebrating Halloween and the fall Harvest. Turn it over and you are celebrating the armed forces and a FIT FALL! We made something for EVERY BODY! If you are a fast and competitive type, fitness it up. If you are looking for a relaxed and goofy outlet that lets you costume up. We have that too. We are the something for Every Body and Everybody races. Check this out.
Formerly the Wigged Out 5k/10k is now your fall festival/Halloween. Wear a costume, anything in a uniform, or just come in running and walking attire. But come to have a great TIME!
