About This Activity

Attention Participants:  THIS YEAR's race is at IRVINE VALLEY COLLEGE with safe measures in place. We  will send off runners by family groups or individuals off 6 feet apart and staggered. 

Halloween Race: the one time of year that already celebrates MASKS! Start with a mask, but you do not need to run with it.

The SOMETHING FOR EVERY BODY & EVERYBODY races! This year’s event will again support our armed forces and anything in a uniform. THIS YEAR'S EVENT will be a TOGETHER-APART RACE...meaning we will have staggered start times (Family groups, running groups, or solo persons going out on the course every 5 seconds).  Chip timed by Itz About Time. Your course times will be tabulated for overall Top Three Places and in 5 year age spans for AGE DIVISION AWARDS.  The difference in 2020 will be a MASK must be worn at the pre packet pick up and bib pick up area at the race.  Standing 6 feet apart and wearing masks will ensure we get to have more safe races!.  You do not need to wear a mask while running

Kick off for A  FIT FALL. We are combining the traditional Halloween/Harvest theme (so if that’s your gig, costume it up, join in games, costume contests, and super fun selfies and awards. But, ALSO, we are adding an ARMY/BOOT Camp flair and SUPPORTING ANYTHING IN A UNIFORM. A corner of the race expo/encampment will be a BOOT CAMP.  Set up with SOCIAL DISTANCING PRACTICES.  A one at a time try the element.  Each is wiped down after use.  A chance to play army at boot camp skill stations before or after the run.  A chance to get army face painted. And an additional awards added for not only best Halloween costumes, but best top three themed in a uniform! And a awards for teams that run in platoon formation. Don’t have a platoon leader , but want to run with one?  We will assign you in platoon at a slow , military pace!
