Safety for everyone is our number one priority so extra measures will be put in place for every runner:

  • Space is limited.
  • Start times will be staggered, with no more than 25 participants starting at one time. You will sign up for your start time when you sign up for the event.
  • Runners need to stay in their car or run solo to warm up until 5 minutes before their designated start time.
  • Bibs and timing chips will be mailed the week before the race.
  • As the course consists of four laps of the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass, you will be required to run with a mask or face covering. You will need to put on your face covering whenever you pass someone without being able to maintain proper distance.
  • No headphones will be allowed while participating to ensure you can hear when runners/walkers are approaching behind you.
  • Please bring your own water to carry with you as you participate. There will be no water stops along the course.
  • Post-race goodies, including a bottle of water and snacks, will be pre-packaged. You will also be required to put on your face covering after crossing the finish line.
  • If you are feeling under the weather or have a fever of any level, we ask you not to participate on race day.

The Halloween-O-Run will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana (RMHCK). RMHCK provides the home and support that allows families to stay together while they focus on the healing of their sick children at a critical time. The RMH began with 19 guest rooms in 1984. As the need grew, so did they. In 2003, RMHCK expanded to 29 rooms, and then expanded again in 2009, this time to 36 guest rooms, each accommodating up to four people. Their latest expansion, completed in 2020, took us to 56 guest rooms. Your support of the House during these tough times will allow them to continue to provide the support so many families need.

The 5K route for the Halloween-O-Run 5K will consist of four laps of the interior parking road at the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass. You will need to keep track of your number of laps and on the fifth lap, will make your way through the Finish Line. A map of the course route can be found here. The Kids Candy Dash will be a very short dash to the finish line.
