About This Activity
Run For Your Lives returns to St. Charles this year, and we hope you are ready for a serious case of the spooks! Tri To Finish is excited to welcome back our friendly neighborhood ghosts and goblins from the St. Charles Village of the Living Dead Haunted House to provide a Halloween touch to this fast, flat course. These monsters can be pretty scary, so this year we’ve added a new, un-timed race for our runners who may be a little faint of heart.
The Run For Your Lives consists of USATF Sanctioned 5k races that originated as a fundraiser for the St. Charles High School Cross Country team. This year, proceeds will benefit St. Charles High School Track and Field. The “Spook-Free” 5k will begin at 4:30pm, with the “Spooky” run to follow at 7pm. Both events are run/walk friendly, and costumes are encouraged! All ages are welcome, so bring the whole family out to this fun, festive event.
A big “thank you” goes out to our title sponsor and co-organizer C.M. Humpula Funeral Home, who will be providing post-race refreshments and awards. Homemade treats and unique awards have been a hit in the past, and we plan to keep it that way!
All proceeds from this event will benefit the St. Charles Community High School track and field team.
Event details and schedule
Run For Your Lives starts at C.M. Humpula Funeral Home which is located in St. Charles Industrial Park on the east side of M-52 just north of downtown St. Charles. The race will start on Entrepreneur Dr. and head out the rail trail towards town. The course is an out-and-back, running through some side streets and then back to the funeral home. This is a flat fast course. St. Charles Village of the Living Dead Haunted House will have ghouls on the course spooking runners so be prepared to be scared!!

We completely understand that plans change and runners will sometimes be unable to compete in an event they've signed up for. Unfortunately, refunds will not be provided for any event unless the event is cancelled for some reason.
Should a runner have an injury or other medical issue keeping them from competing in an event they've registered for then we would be happy to transfer their registration to a similar event up to and including the same event the following season with a written explanation of injury from a physician.
Transferring registrations to other runners is NOT allowed.
