About This Activity
Make the most use of your wonderful and creative costumes by starting Halloween with a morning run/walk through the bucolic but haunted Charlotte Hall Three-Notch Trail. The 5k course is flat & fast and PR-friendly but will also be a howling and fun family jaunt! Come dressed to impress in your most awesome Halloween attire/costume for the competition will be fierce for best costume awards! Pets, strollers, and baby joggers are also welcome.
