Hello Trek or Treat-ers!
Run day is next Friday, October 13. We can’t wait! It’s going to be a spook-tacular night!
A few important notes:
EARLY KIT PICK UP – SAVE TIME ON RUN DAY!
Please take advantage of our early kit pick up date! Things get very busy on race night. Save time by picking up your race kit and bib this Tuesday, October 10th between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. at Gear Bike Shop in Oakville (547 Trafalgar Road – near the GO Station and QEW).
We will be collecting food donations at early kit pick up, and you CAN pick up kits on behalf of friends/family. Rented headlamps will need to be picked up on event day.
FOOD DONATIONS FOR THE OAKVILLE FARE SHARE FOOD BANK
Please don’t forget your food donations for the Oakville Fare Share Food Bank. Bring them on race night and put them into our giant pumpkin! Here’s a list of most-needed items. Please help us exceed our 1,500 lbs of food goal!
Have a child who’ll be celebrating a birthday on event day? Let us know and we can give them a shout-out before the race starts! Email us the child’s name, how old they are turning and which event (Creepy Mile or 5K) they are registered in.
DON’T FORGET YOUR MANDATORY FLASHLIGHT OR HEADLAMP
The course is dark. And by dark we mean DARK. All racers in the 5K and Creepy Mile are required to carry a flashlight or use a headlamp. Please be sure to get them out and ready so you have them on race day.
Please remember that there will be spooky haunters/course marshals along the 5K route. No one will jump out at you, but be prepared for some scary folks helping to guide your way. Parents/guardians running with 7+ year olds may want to give youngsters this information ahead of time. The Creepy Mile is 100% child-friendly.
See you on race day, muwhahahaha!
