About This Activity

I hope everyone comes out an enjoys our Haunted Night Trail Run which is now part of West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners. We are the only Night Trail Run in our Tri-State Area.  Our KT crew works hard to put on organized fun races that you will never forget.  Big Thanks to WVMTR for help making this race possible. Please obey our safety requirements or you will not be allowed to participate in this event, SAFTEY is our number one priority. Running, Zombies, Bon-fire, Chili, Smores, and  Friends this race has it all. There is stories of actual ghost sightings near Old Baldy Trail, if your lucky maybe you will get to see him. See you soon.

3.5 Miles and 7 mile Haunted Night Trail Run

Course is marked with 500 glow sticks and flags for easy navigation.

Unmaned Water station at approximately 2miles and 5.5miles

Scare Zones:
We will have 6 to 7 scare zones thru out the 3.5 mile course. These scare zones will be made up of volunteers, and scouts. The zones will be stationed on parts of the trail where the terrain and footing is optimal for saftey of our runners and our volunteer scarers. The zombies, evil clowns, and whatever else you will encounter will not be aloud to touch a runner, the same goes for the runner, please do not harm our volunteers. Please keep in mind that the runners head lamps will occasionally blind our scarers sometimes, so please make sure you safely navagate around them. For the runners that will go on and compete in the 7mile you only have to worry about being scared the first 3.5 miles, the remaining part of your run will be scare free... or will it. HaHaHa Haaaa

Event details and schedule

ALL RACERS MUST HAVE A FLASH LIGHT or HEAD LAMP to participate. NO EXCEPTIONS. Safety is important. Make sure u have fresh batteries and new bulbs.

Take your time and be safe on the course. Running at night and on trails requires extra concentration, it has more obstacles and takes more time. Don't expect to be able to go as fast as you can during the day and on pavement. Take your time, have fun and enjoy the race.
