Do you like the spirit of Halloween? Do you like going for a run or walk? Then join us at the Third Annual Pumpkin Slayer 5k on October 21, 2023, presented by the Bay Area Runners Club.  The run/walk will begin at 6:45pm this year, to give us that dusk start but maybe an evening finish for some. It will be held on the paved rail trail across the street from the Coryell Fieldhouse located on 514 Morton St. in Bay city. Our creepy course will be winding through the eerie woods utilizing the Bay-zil trail heading into Frankenlust Township. It is an out and back course. We will celebrate with refreshments at the finish line as we hand out custom Age Group awards to runners/walkers.  Each registered racer will be given an award at the finish. A t-shirt will be included with registration(cutoff for t-shirt is 10/8). This is a family friendly event for a wonderful cause, COMMUNITY!  Support Bay county's local food pantry this year! All proceeds will go directly to Safe Harbor food pantry. BARC will give 100% of the funds to Safe Harbor. You can also go to and click on Community Impact for a snapshot of the many other charities we support. Every month we give thousands of dollars to amazing community outreach programs. Consider joining the Bay Area Runners Club so that you can be involved in giving back through fun and fitness!
