The run will feature 3 trick or treat stations for kids and adults to collect sweets along the route. Spooky Halloween music will be played throughout the route to encourage our runners and walkers to move a little faster! Mwa-ha-ha-haaaa …

Although there won’t be timing at this run, we will be awarding the first Witch to cross the finish line as well as the first Black Cat and first Pumpkin.

Proceeds will go to GSAFE. A Wiscsonsin non-profit that creates just schools for LGBTQ+ Youth
