Monday, November 2nd Elmer, NJ 08318 US Directions

Haunted Trail Run

6:30PM EST - 8:00PM EST
Tentatively Postponed to 11/2

New Date: Monday, November 2nd

Due to the forecast of Tropical Storm Zeta calling for high winds and heavy rains, this run cannot be safely produced on Friday night. We have postponed the event to Monday night, 11/2

Here Are Your Options:

Thanks! We know weeknights can be a tough swing, but thanks to daylight savings, we actually would be able to start earlier! The run would open at 6:30 and we will use an "open start" format where runners can start the run any time between 6:30 and 7:00 pm.

To be able to produce this event, we need at least 50% of the original registered runners to opt for the new date.

For no additional charge, we will defer your registration to our Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning. A confirmation email will be sent to you as soon as it is switched. 

Runners will receive a 50% refund on their registration fees. Anyone that added a shirt or headlamp to their registration will receive a full refund on those items. Please allow 3-7 business days for the refunds to post.

Thanks for your support and we hope you'll try again next year.

The Trail of Terror is a night-time trail run that uses the ultimate motivator to run: FEAR.

The two mile course runs through Parvin's infamous Terror in the Timbers Haunted Hayride route and more to pit you against not just other runners, but whatever else is out there in the woods...



*This is not for the faint of heart. This event contains scary actors as well as lighting effects and moving props. If you are frightened easily, this isn't for you.

*The run is held at night on trails with roots and uneven grass/soil. Headlamps are required to participate - no exceptions. You can purchase a headlamp during registration for $2.00 and it will be ready for you at the check-in.

*You SHOULD NOT sign up for this run if you suffer from asthma, heart conditions, are prone to seizures, physical ailments, respiratory conditions, if you suffer from  claustrophobia, or if you are or could possibly be pregnant.

*Actors and volunteers acting as "scarers" will never enter the course, block the path, or jump directly at runners.

*This run is only for patrons aged 16 or older. Sorry.

*Social Distancing measures will be in place and runners will be sent out in waves to ensure there is no crowding, nor any spoiling of the scares. Please indicate your pace when registering.
