Race the Dead is a fun run opportunity to dress up and scare your fellow runners, hosted out of Kicks Bar and Grill
in Towanda. The course is a flat 5K in length, but some don't make it past the first water stop. Scenic luminaries
line the old RT 66 course and you run past the historic haunted Towanda cemetery on this out and back course.
While the luminaries gorgeously define the course we recommend you bring a flashlight, especially if you are a
slower runner. While costumes are not required, if you dress up in your favorite Halloween costume, you might win a
Runners can hit the single waterstop twice. The stop is located about .4 miles from the start or finish and offers
water as well as some seasonal treats and refreshments. As many tend to socialize at the waterstop we strongly encourage
participants to bring a mask and try to social distance.
Entry fee includes a coupon for a soft drink or beer at Kicks.
Race start is at sundown in Towanda which will be 5:55 PM. Could have some noise makers at the start, and
depending on wind conditions the race will start +/- 60 seconds of 5:55 PM
