The Heartland Halloween Classic 5K, part of the Heartland Halloween Weekend Classic Race Series schedule for Saturday, October 29th at Fort Harrison State Park, benefits the Friends of Fort Harrison State Park, a 501 c(3) corporation dedicated to collaborating closely with Fort Harrison State Park staff in order to support property staff in projects and events that preserve, manage and interpret both the natural and cultural heritage and recreational opportunities of Fort Harrison State Park.
Come join us in celebration of the Halloween holiday with a professionally chip-timed, measured 5K run on the hilly Fort Harrison running trails. This hilly 5K course is challenging and fun! Costumes, while not mandatory, are encouraged!
Not up for a 5K? Try your hand at our 2.5K distance!
The 2.5K Youth Race is perfect for those kiddos wanting to try a race, without commuting to a full 5K. Awards will be given to top 3 youth (not gender specific).
Awards will be given for the top 3 in the following age groups: Male, Male Masters (40+), Female, Female Masters (40+) and Youth! Additionally, there will be additional awards for the costumes: Sariest, funniest, punniest, most creative, laziest, best group and best couple costumes (youth and adult costumes will be judged).
All athletes athletes registered by the t-shirt deadline (October 23 at 11:59PM) will receive an event t-shirt, and a custom finisher medal.
