Run Fast - Or Else"

Runners will experience the beauty of DuPont Forest in a unique nighttime racing format with the option of a 5k trail run or the one mile trail run. This is the only race of its kind in our region! Participants will strap on headlamps and light up the night as they duke it out in the dusk. The twists and turns of DuPont’s famous trail system will dare them to push forward, not knowing what bogies and specters might lurk around each corner! The One Mile Fun Run will be Halloween themed, and a great chance for kids and kids-at-heart alike to break in their costumes a few days early!

  • Headlamps or Flashlights are required for this event!
  • Limited entries! Only 300 spots!
  • US Forest Service Permit Approved
