Halloween Event!

Saturday October 28, 9:00am

Greenfield Lake Park

Super heroes, princesses, ghosts, ghouls and goblins will invade Greenfield Lake Park for the most fun 5k and one mile Candy Dash in Wilmington!  Whether you want to burn a few pre-Halloween calories with our fall 5k or get started adding them on with our Candy Dash, a family 1 mile un-timed trick or treat walk, we have you covered. Prizes will be awarded for running fast and for wearing a great costume.  About 60 prizes in all!  Register today for what will no doubt become one of your favorite Halloween traditions!

Pre-registration rates are $25 for children and team members, $30 for adults and $15 for the un-timed 1 mile Candy Dash only (does not include a race t-shirt).    On-site, race-day registration will also be available at the Park:  $30 for children and teams, $35 for adults and $15 for the 1-mile Candy Dash. Children 5 and under are free when accompanied by a paid adult.*  Those registering on race day are encouraged to arrive by 8:15 am.

A 5k registration will also give you entry into the 1 Mile Candy Dash with trick or treat stops!  A race tshirt is guaranteed to 5k registrants and 1 Mile Candy Dash registrants who opt for the Dash+tshirt option by our October 15 deadline.  For those who register past the tshirt deadline, tshirts will be available on a first come first served basis in the sizes still available.  Shirts do not come with the $15 Dash option or for free 5 and under participants.  Please register early!!

Proceeds from the event support the third grade initiative Tar Heels Go Walking and historic preservation programs throughout the Lower Cape Fear Region. Since 2009, through the Tar Heels walking tour, Historic Wilmington Foundation guides have helped educate over 20,000 children, 1,200 parent volunteers and 300 teachers about historic preservation, Wilmington history, public art, and city development.

doughnutsAfter the run/walk, all registrants are invited to enjoy Port City Java coffee and doughnuts from RISE Biscuits and Donuts!
