Description

Enjoy the fall season by joining the Canal Winchester Chamber for the 6th Annual Running Scared 5K and 1-Mile Family Run/Walk at Canal Winchester High School!

Grab your costumes and get moving for the best event of the season. We'll have an awesome long-sleeve shirt (while supplies last), race bib, and medal for all registrants in both events. This year, our in-person event will take place on October 29th at Canal Winchester High School (in past years we have been at Hanner's Park). We are also offering a virtual event run on your own and open from Oct 29th through November 5th.

We will again have a downloadable playlist and a stretch clinic. Virtual participants can pick their favorite route. Virtual runners can upload their times during the event window and compare them to other racers, while in-person participants will be electronically chip-timed.

We are awarding prizes to the best costumes again. Costume prizes will be awarded to:

  • Adults: funniest, scariest, and best team costumes
  • Under 16: funniest, scariest, and most popular on Facebook

Note: for the virtual participants we've provided our race route from Canal Winchester High School for your reference, but you can also run/walk your own 5k or 1M path.
