The Highwood Scare Run/Walk 5K takes place during the Great Highwood Pumpkin Fest. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Highland Park High School Charity Drive!
The course starts at Bent Fork Bakery (355 Waukegan Ave) in downtown Highwood and guides you along the beautiful lakefront trail and through historic Fort Sheridan and then back again. You will run by thousands of carved jack-o-lanterns which will be lit later that evening. A sight not to be missed.
SPECIAL OFFER: All Scare Run 5K participants will receive a Pumpkin Fest hat for the race.
