Field House, Alfond Athletic Center

Bring your broomsticks, cauldrons, and sneakers for the sixth annual Freaky 5K and Fun Run. The Freaky 5K aims to fight back against the sexualization of Halloween and the sexy costumes marketed to girls and young women and bring back creative and scary costumes.

Check-in will begin at 9 a.m. at the field house. The kids’ costume contest and fun run will begin at 9:30 a.m.; the adult costume contest will begin at 10 a.m. and the 5K at 10:30. Kids’ awards will go to those with the scariest costume, most creative costume, and best family theme. Adult awards will be presented for scariest costume, most creative costume, best team costume, and top fundraiser.

If you register before Oct. 18, the cost for the 5K is $10 for minors, $15 for college students, and $20 for adults. Thereafter, the cost is $15 for minors, $20 for college students, and $25 for adults. The kids’ fun run (9 years and younger) costs $5 and includes prizes. For team and family discounts, please call Hardy Girls Healthy Women at 207-861-8131.
