What should I bring?

Parking is a short walk away, and travelling light will be your best bet. There will be a free bag check area and valuables check at the race site, though The Adventure Bureau, LLC is not liable for any items lost or missing from the bag check. If you can’t afford to lose it—DON’T BRING IT.

What should I wear?

Normally, we would say things like running shorts and athletic tops. In October, that just feels so passé. While you’re welcome to come in normal running garb, we encourage everyone to come in costume for the Halloween season! All runners will receive a notification of what team they are in prior to the race date, so don’t worry if you don’t know what to be, we’ll have suggestions!

Other important Adventure stuff:

Waivers will be provided to sign on-site.

Due to parking restrictions at Mt. St. Mary Park, we reccomened parking at the 1st Street Parking Garage, located between Rt. 64 and Illinois St. Plan on a short walk to the course, and a much shorter walk to the afterparty! Please DO NOT park in the parking lots for Jalapeno Grille, Sammy’s Bikes, El Diamante Hand Car Wash, and Klinkey Heating and Sheet Metal.
