About This Activity

What is the Haunt Jaunt?
The Haunt Jaunt is a night-time Halloween-themed race hosted by The City of Plano. It is our goal to provide a safe, fun, and innovative way for citizens to enjoy their Halloween holiday. The 5K will take you through the nature preserve along the paved park trails and streets, combining the convenience of a smooth running surface and the beauty of the Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve. The 1-Mile Fun Run will keep you off the street and in the park for a family-friendly experience. For 2014, race date is October 18th.  
The One Mile Fun Run 

This One Mile course will take you and your children out of The Amphitheater and onto the Oak Point Park Recreation Trails. There is a turnaround point after a half-mile, and you will follow the same route back to the finish line. You and your children will enjoy trail decorations and a family-friendly Halloween-themed experience. Kids get a free T-shirt, and Adults run for free with a registered child. There will be prizes and a costume contest for those runners who come dressed up in their spookiest garb! 
Haunt Jaunt 5K - Individual 

This 5 Kilometer course will take you out of The Amphitheater and onto Spring Creek Parkway, along the Santa Fe Trail, and onto the Oak Point Park Trails.

You will enjoy spooky lighting, sound effects, and other chilling surprises as you follow the path and return to the finish line at The Amphitheater at Oak Point Park. Each registration comes with a T-shirt. There will be an awards ceremony after the race to celebrate your accomplishments.  Chip timing is offered for an extra $5.
