11:00 AM: KIDS 1-MILE TRICK-OR-TREAT TRAIL
-There are NO early packet pick-ups for this race, so we recommend getting to Central Park in Morris Plains at least 1/2 hour before your planned event so you're not rushing to the start line!
-We will have signs around the entrances to the park giving you directions on where to park, but you're looking for the tent near the street hockey rinks.
-If your child is registered for the 11:00 Trick-or-Treat Trail but wants to participate in the Costume Contest, they must be present, in costume, and signed up for it by 9:45. We will have a pumpkin patch, decorating station, craft table & tattoos to fill their time before their race gets underway at 11!
-Costume Contest Categories are:
*Cutest *Funniest *Scariest
*Best Couple *Best Group *Top Dog
-The course is a mixed surface: paved, grass & gravel, along with some hills. It's challenging, so be ready for some sweating!
-There are 3 "Haunted" portions of the trail ... but don't worry! Our haunters have been instructed to be more fun than scary, especially with the little ones! We're not looking to give you heart failure ... just a spirited run/walk!
-If you did not order a PB&J boxed lunch online and still want one, we will have a limited supply available on race day! We will also have a store open selling soup mugs, umbrellas, Fruit Punch Blood Bags & Jello Syringes. As always, all the proceeds go to Goryeb Children's Hospital for bone health awareness and research!
-Cash is always welcomed, but we will have a card reader on hand on race day for an extra purchases you want to make!
