Celebrate Halloween with the LIVE Scary Run on October 31st in Washougal (LIMITED ENTRIES!)

Just this week, we are featuring our second live race! This usually isn’t uncommon, but, then again, 2020 isn’t really all that common either. Why Racing Events was given approval to run the Scary Run LIVE on Saturday, October 31th in Washougal, Washington (in addition to their virtual version running 10/25-11/1). There are limited spots so register ASAP! We recommend going here for all the info straight from the RD, but here are some basics.

The Scary run has also been an opportunity to run, be festive and celebrate Halloween all at the same time. Costumes are optional, but getting chased by zombies, monsters, and psycho freaks is not. The Scary Run offers a live 10k, and 5k and both begin at the Reflection Plaza in downtown Washougal and runners will be going in small waves every 15 minutes for three hours. Washougal is just across the river from Portland and neighbors Vancouver. Being chased and ‘spooked’ on the course should guarantee some fast times.

All participants will receive a technical shirt, beanie, gloves, and amazing finisher medal in addition to a goodie bag from sponsors. The course is flat and fast along the Columbia River and takes advantage of the beautiful, quaint town of Washougal. Portions of the proceeds will go to local charities based in the area.

The Scary Run is a fun way to celebrate Halloween, get your heart rate up in a whole new way and make some fun memories. AND IT’S REALLY, TRULY, ACTUALLY LIVE!!!
