We are a go for 2020! A cap is in place to allow for social distancing, and once we hit that cap, registration will be closed.

What's better than running by yourself? Putting on a costume and running (or walking!) with a bunch of crazy fun people, that's what! Spend your Halloween morning running or walking along the beautiful Tennessee River, with a bunch of the funnest people you've ever met.

The course is basically completely flat, on a paved path that meanders by the Chickamauga Dam, behind the campus of Chattanooga State, and alongside the Tennessee River, passing playgrounds and restrooms with toilets that flush. Yep, you read that right, toilets that flush and sinks with running water and soap. Because fighting with your costume in a port-o-potty sounds like a recipe for disaster.

You will pass the start/finish/aid station area multiple times throughout the race. This means you're welcome to leave a drop bag to access your own personal goodies and you can shed layers as you warm up. This is also a good place to reapply sunscreen, address any potential issues such as blisters, etc.

The race is super low-key and non-competitive; we'd prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. It's a group run type atmosphere, just with finish times and medals at the end! There is a 4 hour time limit for all distances.

Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, race swag, finisher medal for all distances, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, and snacks and post-race food. Trick or Treat stations will keep you full of all the candy you need to pre-game for the big night!

Shirts are NOT included in your race fee. We do give out race swag, it just won't be a shirt! Shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other swag will be available for purchase during registration and on race day.

This is the fourth of the 4-part 2020 Awesomesauce Riverwalk Series. If you run Freeze Your Half Off, That Dam Race, Burn Your Half Off, and this race, you'll pick up a bonus medal!

As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.

Because this race is on Halloween, costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory. This is a family event, so please keep your costume kid-friendly!
