About This Activity

Ready for a spooky, fun race? Twilight Thriller is Starlit Running Company’s Halloween themed 5K Run/Walk on the beautiful, luminary-lit Frisco Greenway Trail. While it's definitely not mandatory that participants dress in costume, we highly encourage runners and walkers to have fun by getting into the spirit of the holiday and dressing up!  With pre-race entertainment, ultra-soft race shirts*, chip timing, glow bracelets, a costume contest, overall and age category awards, music by a professional DJ, post-race goodies and a post-race beer garden, this is a party you don't want to miss!
