Scary Run 5k | 10k | Half Marathon
October 26, 2025 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
An event every year that begins at 8:00 am on day last of October, repeating until October 26, 2025
Get out your Halloween costumes and be prepared to be scared out of your wits. If the running doesn’t increase your heart rate, being chased by monsters, zombies and psycho freaks will!
We will make you earn your post-event party by running or walking a Half Marathon, 10K or 5K in beautiful Washougal, WA. Festive food and drink to follow the race!
Half Marathon starts at 8:30am. 5K & 10K start at 9am. Be there early to set up and for pre-race instructions.
What to Bring
Bring the obvious – Costumes are optional but definitely makes the photos more enjoyable and makes it more fun for all! Remember your running/walking shoes & gear, your bib number etc. Watch the weather closely. The show goes on no matter what the weather is doing. Fortunately, if you’re dressed correctly, it shouldn’t matter. If it’s raining, you may want to layer with a water-proof running jacket. If it’s cold, wear some running gloves. Vaseline is always a good idea on any spots that might rub (underarms, inner thighs, feet). Wear your Bib Number on the front of your shirt/jacket which also includes your disposable chip timing piece. Watch for the cameras en route and give us a big cheesy smile!
Plus remember to bring a warm, clean change of clothing so you can enjoy the post-event festivities.
As a reminder, if your family is going to be cheering you along en route, remind them to bring cowbells, music, fun signs and pom poms to help keep your energy up along the course. Or perhaps, they should dress up and try to scare you as well!
This race is a fun, costume-themed run/walk. Although titled ‘Scary Run’ your costume doesn’t need to be scary. Be creative and dress in any costume you like as long as you can comfortably and safely run and walk. Feel free to get together with friends and come up with a fun costume theme.
The ‘Scary’ component will surface while you are running along the course and should guarantee some solid personal bests!
Kids 12 and under get to register for FREE and kids 13 ~ 17 receive 50% off on their registration!
