This 9 AM event is for 5k, 10k, and 15k runners. It is also for 5k and 10k walkers - we call these fitness walkers. There are over 500,000 fitness walkers in the Portland area, and that would include you and me! And, finally, teams may compete in a 15k Relay. The course is on the golf paths and on the fairways of the golf course. Make this a simple 5k, 10k, or 15k for Fun, for Competition, for Fitness.
Run for your Bones II - OK - you asked for it!
The Bones II event has a few more things to consider. You will run a chip-timed 5k. You are seeking to be entered into a raffle valuable prizes - and you will have fun doing it. You will follow the same course that the 'fast' people run on. But, you will stop at 7 different stations, and accomplish a Halloweenathon task. These are the tasks:
STATION 1 - bob for an apple - catch the apple! The witch keeps you there, until you are done!
STATION 2 - eat a dangling donut - while the donut is dangling
STATION 3 - find a little pumpkin on the course at Mile 1
STATION 4 - count the corn in the jar. The runner who gets closest, takes home the jar
STATION 5 - decorate a sugar cookie - take off again while you eat the cookie
STATION 6 - bean bag throw - get the bag in the hole, and continue your run
STATION 7 - count the black cats in the tent. Continue on only when you have counted each one
Everyone who gets their racing bib stamped at each Station will be entered into a drawing for valuable prizes.

Your little ones - it does not matter the size or age will run around the golf course on designated paths. This event is not too serious - but, kids do run to the TRICK OR TREAT tent, and bring back some goodies. We usually determine the length of the course just prior to the START based on the size of the kids. Last year we had two lengths - a 1k, and a .5k course for the kids. If you consider yourself a kid, you may run it also. The Kids Race is free - parents may purchase a Kids Medal for $10 or $12 for big-person medal at Packet Pick Up or at the race as long as supplies last.
Kids 12-and-under. This event is a little more serious. This is a timed race but, kids do run to the TRICK OR TREAT tent at the turnaround point, and bring back some goodies.. Results will be posted online on the new Kids 1-Mile Leader Board. Cost is $10.00. Medal is included. Kids choose which color of medal they receive.
