1. If you come in costume, you can join the costume contest!
2. Once you pick up your packet on race day, go over to the "Costume Contest" banner, and register yourself as a participant in the category (listed below) that you'd like to be entered in (you just have to write down your bib # & costume description under the category you want to enter)
3. We will give you a button with your Category & Entry #. Now it's up to you! Go ahead and flaunt your costume! Put your button on, and SELL yourself (or just hang out and wait for the race to start)!
4. We will have a costume parade at the start of the race at approximately 9:45am, where all the contestants will be called up to the starting line to show their costume. Everyone in attendance will have a chance to vote for their favorite costumes in all the categories right then and there!
5. **IMPORTANT** If your child is planning on being a part of the costume contest, and they are participating in the Trick-or-Treat Trail, they still need to be registered for the costume contest & there in person for the start of the 5K at 9:45am to take part in the costume contest! We will have plenty for them to do while they wait for their 1-mile Trick-or-Treat Trail, including a pumpkin patch and decorating station & Vendor Tables to keep them busy while they wait for their race to start!
6. Voting will end when the 5K kicks off, and awards will be presented with the age group awards at the end of the 5K!
Without further ado...

Bring your favorite furry friend with you, and enter them into our BRAND NEW "TOP DOG" Category! They can be cute, scary, funny ... we don't care ... they just have to be with you!
This one is special for those little ghosts and goblins that are running with us! If you're signed up for the Kids Trick-or-Treat Trail, this is probably for you (but if you're older, and your costume is just adorable, this might be fitting for you as well)!
It's punny. It's silly. It's downright hilarious! If those are the words you'd use to describe your costume ... you're entering the right category!
It's bloody. It's gory ... I don't recognize you because you're so terrifying. Does that describe your costume? Then you're in the right category!
So your costume is epic, but you couldn't do it alone. It can be scary, funny, punny ... but at the end of the day, it takes two of you to make it complete! This is the category for you!
You and your besties, or your whole family, put your heads together and came up with something that is AWESOME TOGETHER!! If that describes your costume, then THIS is your category!
